I'm not going to repeat myself on that again.

Frederik's proposal as amended by Manoj has been seconded by:

    Steve Langasek <20060927222506.GE4738@mauritius.dodds.net>
    Bill Allombert <20060927202918.GE19012@seventeen>
    Bastian Blank <20060927203044.GA19673@wavehammer.waldi.eu.org>

    Daniel Ruoso <1159523955.6103.9.camel@localhost>

Depending on whether Manoj or Frederik is considered the proposer,
Frederik might also count as a second, but only five are needed, and
there are seven above.

Again, no, Debian is not distributing anything we're not confident we
have a valid license to distribute. And no, "confident" doesn't mean
"certain beyond all possible doubt" -- it means we make a good faith
attempt to comply with the stated wishes of the rights holders.
