My abstract would be:
1, 2, 3, 5 are about releasing Sarge first, and then sort out anything
4 is reverting to what we did before the "editorial changes":
release free software, but not apply DFSoftwareG to non-Software.
If it was not bad then, I don't think it became bad by "ediorial changes".
6 is about waiting with sarge until we sorted out everything which
was rendered unfree by the "editorial changes". Which will be a long time.
PS: I'm still sure that 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 include dropping the GPL text
from Debian (AKA suicide) sooner or later. I don't want to discuss this
again, as it has been discussed in depth already, I just want to mention.
(Has the release manager commented on this?)
