Your vision is impaired, then. I posted a reply to Gerv in the
thunderbird thread a few days ago explaining why debian-legal
isn't that. Why not lurk awhile before posting about non-package

How does that differ from a definition? That way madness (and
live rats) lies and other people are going mad already. Let's
not copy them.

Why not just deal with the grey areas when people stray into
them? When we can't agree, we'll argue for a few months and
probably eventually move one way or the other.
