I'm not discussing the issue on the list because I think the current
direction in which Debian is heading seems reasonable and forward progress
is being made, so there doesn't seem to be anything to argue about or any
point in doing so.

The folks who have been upset about this direction for years are still
upset and I'm sorry that they're still upset and that we haven't found
some approach that makes everyone happy.  But so far as I can tell, there
have been no new substantive arguments and no changes in direction, so
there doesn't seem to be anything new to reply about, particularly given
that I'm not involved in the implementation and therefore am not involved
in analyzing any of the technical concerns they raise.

"Courage" seems to me like an odd label to put on any of this.
