Andrei, as I've said - these companies don't have the time or money to
contribute to Debian.  Not that it would have made any difference - the
TC did not consult them when making their decision, and would not have
consulted them even if my clients had been contributing.

Andrei, I follow your advice here and appreciate it a lot.  I've learned
a lot from you.  And you can contribute all you want.  But don't expect
everyone else to have the skills or means to do so.
