One problem is that we are being told that our suggestions have been
rejected by some decision-making process, but there appears to be no
record of the discussion, decision or process!

Meanwhile, I feel that CC's statement assumes that debian's compromise
process will allow them to forbid TPM.

This looks a bit asymmetric to me.  debian mostly works in the open,
but I can't get much information about CC's decisions into the open.
It's very difficult to make good suggestions in that situation.  It
feels like we're trying to give directions through a maze we haven't
seen while blinded.

That didn't seem to be it.  I could not subscribe and it seemed that
my posts were silently blackholed.

Thank you 1000.  It seems to work now.
