	It is belabouring the obvious. How can anyone think that 40
 characters is the full text of the proposal? 

	And are there really debian developers who do not understand
The details of the general resolution can be found at:

"The things to do are: the things that need doing: that /you/ see need
to be done, and that no one else seems to see need to be done. Then
you will conceive your own way of doing that which needs to be done --
that no one else has told you to do or how to do it.  This will bring
out the real you that often gets buried inside a character that has
acquired a superficial array of behaviors induced or imposed by others
on the individual."  --- R. Buckminster Fuller
