I would consider such a statement completely non-binding on me and would
ignore it in favor of continuing to pursue a resolution to the firmware
Moreover, the reason the firmware question was being put to a vote in the
first place is because I'm not willing to put my name on a release of etch
that includes sourceless firmware without first getting a statement from the
project that this is the right thing to do, and *why* this is ok if it
contradicts the current 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.
