Well, debian is pretty obvious about its purpose. It's a link right
from the front page. Maybe people should be choosing other distros if
they don't like bullet item number one of the social contract. Debian
without the social contract would be just another distro. In other
words, there would be no point to using debian without the contract.
Include my name in the list of "people for whom socila contract is the #1
point". I use debian because of its commitment to free software (which is part
of social contract) not because it has apt or some other cool software.
Include my name in the list of "people for whom social contract is the
#1 point" also. When Debian ceases to be Free, then Debian ceases to
retain my loyalty.
