I think that we need a place to discuss such details, and definitely
debian-project is not appropriate.

Stefano, as admin of the DEP Alioth project (I think that the others retired),
would you agree to create a dedicated mailing list for DEP-5? I volunteer for
the mailman administration, and for taking the responsibility that no major
changes are discussed there instead of on debian-project.

Alternatively, we could use an existing list, for instance debian-legal.

Have a nice day,
