If you do not think that the discussion came to a conclusion
(BTW, Bruce did shift from his original proposal), then the proper
forum is debian-devel. I did not see your s=comments there. Nobody is
squashing dissent. All we are saying that that's the way the
developers want it. If you disagree, shift over to debian-devel and
we shall attempt for consensus.
