Re: [AMENDMENT]: Release Etch now, with source-less but legal and freely licensed firmware

Hash: SHA1

I second the following amendment:
|  1. We affirm that our Priorities are our users and the free software
|     community (Social Contract #4);
|  2. We acknowledge that there is a lot of progress in the kernel
|     firmware issue; however, it is not yet finally sorted out; 
|  3. We assure the community that there will be no regressions in
|     the progress made for freedom in the kernel distributed by
|     Debian relative to the Sarge  release in Etch
|  4. We give priority to the timely release of Etch over sorting every
|     bit out; for this reason, we will treat removal of sourceless
|     firmware as a best-effort process, and deliver firmware in udebs as
|     long as it is necessary for installation (like all udebs), and
|     firmware included in the kernel itself as part of Debian Etch,
|     as long as we are legally allowed to do so, and the firmware is
|     distributed upstream under a license that complies with the DFSG. 
Version: GnuPG v1.4.3 (GNU/Linux)
