i do NOT second this proposal.

if, however, it gains enough support that it will come to a vote, i
propose the following amendment:

that the entire text of John Goerzen's proposal be replaced with

   "All Debian developers will be formally requested to renounce their
   evil ways (if they have any), orphan any non-free packages they are
   responsible for, request removal of said package(s) from the debian
   ftp archive, and contribute their energies to free alternatives
   instead.  This is a request, not an order - each developer will be
   free to respond to or ignore the request as they see fit."

please do not second this amendment until & unless JG's proposed GR
gains enough support to require a vote.
