It probably is. We never got to hold the discussion about this during the irc
meeting, so i guess once the firmware issue is definitively cleared, we need
to hold a new irc meeting, to fix the rules for that.

That said, in the current state of affairs, we probably need to drop tg3,
acenic, and a couple of GPL sourceless modules from the upcoming 2.6.18 kernel
uploads. Not sure what to do about this, should we hold any kernel uploads
until the second vote which contains the resolution which we wanted is voted
on (presumably 10 days or so from now), upload a pruned kernel, and then
revert the pruning if the second resolution passes, or just ignore the whole
issue ? 

To the RMs, will you then now, as you said you would before the vote, allow us
to release a kernel which is in direct contradiction of what the resolution
recently voted upon says ?
