Well, show me the non-free.org infrastructure then. I have seen nothing
such, and if the vote pass, i will have nowhere to upload my non-free
packages, so altough many people have said that it is not up to me, the
fact have proved the contrary.

Also, i have some misgivings about the long term goals and the
oportunity of having a non-free.org archive setup. I do believe that in
order to achieve a short time victory, the non-free removal candidates
are potentially setting us up for a long term drawback in our goal to
achieve a fully free plateform, including all the vertical
infrastructure, the kernel, the OS, the apps, but also the bios or
firmware below, the hardware drivers and the actual hardware.
