I don't think anyone is disagreeing with that, except possibly Arnt Karlsen,
the original reporter who isn't participating in this thread. I think
everyone agrees that #317359 is not a DFSG-freeness problem or a GPL
violation, and is at most wishlist. I don't think there's any argument
to return to.
(It doesn't matter what you call it; you can call the GPL a "Ham Sandwich",
and I can't see how that would be relevant to freeness or be a GPL violation.
It's the text and requirements of the license that matters, not menu titles.)
