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.
