So is it that you believe we can DFSG-sanitize main's documentation and
firmware in a time frame that fits our current release schedule, that
you believe you can persuade Anthony without a GR that he's empowered to
continue to use sarge-ignore for such issues, or that you don't think
release schedule slippage is enough of a problem to warrant a GR?  It
sounds like you're saying we can release sarge as-is and on-schedule
without a GR, but I don't see how that's possible.
