Please, stop being needlessly aggressive in the lists. Yes, a new vote
is in place, and settling the issue down for good. But right now,
there is no need to just insult Bdale's good dilligence, even with a
post he did not pursue but landed on his (very capable) hands. We can
argue on Debian's pseudo-legalese forever and then some more. But it
is more productive if we put that effort into working, getting out of
the present situation.

And learning not to be bashful just for the sake of it. Yes, Bdale's
skin is quite probably thick enough by now, as is most of
Debian's. Still, that's not a good reason to do ad-hominem attacks.
