I don't think sanguine emotions about the GPL need be criteria for
admission as a Debian developer.

There are plenty of people who dislike the GPL and yet make valuable
contributions to the free software community.

I agree that Paul Serice doesn't really appear to "get it" in general vis a
vis free software (or is just being a destructive troll), but I don't think
that prospective developers need to swear fealty to any particular license;
just so long as they agree with the principles of free software generally
and uphold them in their work for Debian.
