Is this a recommendation to vote against the proposal, a proposed amendment
to the proposal, or just a comment?

For the record, I would prefer to see nonfree.debian.org.  That way it's
clear to people using FTP and http, also.  When we have our own developers
say Debian's got X number of packages in it (and they count non-free) the
distiction blurred to much.  A different machine (or atleast a different
directory tree) should help restore the balance.

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
