Yes, that's what I said.  You've only replied to the one mail I sent you
a CC on, and I was unable to find any replies from you to people who
didn't CC you, which led me to the hypothesis that you're only reading CC's.

You havn't said whether you actually want CC's or not, however.  I'll
experiment by not CC'ing this message to you.  :)

The DFSG is to-the-point.  It isn't heavily laden with the fine details
of application; rather, it expresses Debian's principles of software
freedom concisely.
