I hope it is now clear that we do in fact have some fundamental differences of opinion (something I have absolutely no problems with). As I'm happy with the DEP with the lastest changes included by Lucas, I don't see much point in continuing this discussion, especially not as it's not going anywhere. The current text requires people preparing patches to actively consider whether an NMU is appropriate for each specific case, which is good. It also allows them to do the NMU and use DELAYED if they feel they can justify it, which is also good. Hopefully it will prevent people from behaving like mindless NMU machines, which would be very bad. Let's leave the rest up to how things evolve in practice. There are bound to be some interesting flame fests^W^Wdiscussions over interpretation and practice, but in most cases I expect things will work out fine. Cheers, FJP
