Re: stepping in between Debian and FSF [Was: A possible GFDL compromise: a proposal]

Bruce, it's quite clear from the quoted text that your efforts
(whatever they are) at getting the FSF to discuss this issue have thus
far failed utterly. Do you expect any progress here? If not, it's time
for us (Debian) to start taking more direct action about eliminating
the GFDLed stuff.
