I do not see how talking about the NM process or that GR is at all
relevant in this thread, and please do not consider this message of mine
an intent to contribute to it in any other way but to clarify a
misrepresentation of a team I'm a member of.

From the point of view of Front Desk, motivation has always been there:
but a GR was needed to be able to proceed, because the hands of FD were
rather tied by this other GR: http://www.debian.org/vote/2008/vote_002

Please do not try to provide facts about the motivation or intentions of
others unless you really know them, otherwise you run into the risk of
misrepresenting other people, which is bad.
