I demand that you retract this slanderous remark.  It may be the case that
the kernel packages are never brought into compliance with the DFSG *as
currently written*, or *as you would like them to be interpreted*, but I
would not be spending my time on this discussion if I didn't think it
mattered to bring the kernel packages in line with the DFSG.

Steve Langasek                   Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer                   to set it on, and I can move the world.
