how do I continue from here?

#1 Do we have some process for talking to the Software Freedom Law
Center, or would I just send them a mail (perhaps after running a
draft through debian-legal).

#2 Is there any point in doing so? Other Mails in the thread show that
there is a non-negligible number of Debian developers who disagrees with
using the system library exception for GMP or OpenSSL.
