	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.
