So you can see that the DPL has explicitly endorsed Debian UK as a
mechanism for donating for Debian.

Therefore, I trust there will be no more statements like this one:

MJ Ray writes ("Re: Donations"):

In particular, the Constitution says that `[a person] must not
actively work against these rules and decisions properly made under

If you want you can hold a GR to reverse the DPL's decision but you
must not interfere with people who are carrying out that decision, for
example by emailing FUD to external people.
