For the record I would like to state that I cannot be part of a
consensus for this interpretation of the DFSG. I do not wish to
discuss this point now but would be happy to discuss this point at
any future time when a specific package comes before this list.
I'm also happy to discuss now off-list; it just seems pointless to
waste list traffic on a side discussion when the purpose of the list
is for license review.
