Really? How do you know that? It would be a step backwards and it's
quite different from what I've read in pieces like
GPLv3 Development and Publicity Project
(also carried on fsfeurope.org) - but it's not expected to start
until next year anyway, which would explain the relative quiet.

It would be good to have any willing debian developers involved in
this from an early stage *AND* to ensure the comments are heard.

I don't see a way to participate much just yet, though.
