Yeah, i know, Manoj told that. I wonder why it is not possible to keep the old
proposal ongoing, the same way a seconder can retake a proposal the original
proposer retire, not sure this makes sense.

That said, i consider that this proposal currently under vote is not a good
one, that i have been wronged when i agreed to delay the original call to vote
on the DPLs urging, since it is clear that all the effort i have done is now
showed in the trashcan, since we are voting on Manoj's proposal, which will
mean we have to get ride of a number of firmwares, among them the tg3
firmware, which is contrary to the result of the kernel team position
statement and will.

Frederik i don't understand why you did let that happen, and why you didn't at
least second the proposal we worked on together.
