The easy option is to pass the buck: "Which pieces of software fall into the category of program is a policy decision to be made by the appropriate delegates of the DPL, under the normal procedures of the constitution." (Obviously, if that option's taken, I'll just be delegating the decision of the moment to the tech ctte anyway; and the usual checks and balances of having things be able to be overridden by new delegates, by the tech ctte, or by GR still apply too of course. The question is how the definition of "program" can be changed or adapted to new scenarios -- only by 3:1 GR, by the delegates as part of doing their jobs, or some other way) Cheers, aj -- Anthony Towns <firstname.lastname@example.org> <http://azure.humbug.org.au/~aj/> Don't assume I speak for anyone but myself.
