Withdrawn: The DFSG do not require source code for data, including firmware


Under §A.4. of the Debian standard resolution procedure, I am hereby
withdrawing my proposal of August 22 (Message-ID:

While I still believe that this proposal represents a reasonable position
for the project to take, the discussion over the past two weeks makes it
clear to me that a large enough fraction of our developership disagrees
strongly with this interpretation that it's not in the best interest of the
project to push forward with this proposal.

There are a number of other options on the table which have the same basic
aim of reconciling Debian's handling of kernel firmware with the DFSG; I
would encourage the seconders of this original proposal to consider
seconding one of those other options rather than stepping up to be a
proposer of this withdrawn proposal.

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