Hmm. I see you just updated the release goals [2]. I was follow the
requirements there to hardening [3]. So, until today this was a release
goal: "This goal is to update as many packages as possible to use
security hardening build flags via dpkg-buildflags." Of course, if it is
now unacceptable, I will remove it ASAP. Regarding your [1], where can I
actually find this list? Not that I think openmotif is on it, but anyway.

I must have missed this, I really thought it was still part of the
