Well, i blame Manoj (not wearing his secretary hat) for doing the call for
vote, after i had made the final proposal, proposal which should have been
consensual, and Manoj (as-DD) was aware off, and even helped with the wording.
I blame Manoj (wearing his secretary hat) for actually following through on
the vote, knowing there was an important proposal missing, as he has done in
the past, and his power as secretary allowed.
This comes from an evident conflict of interest, for Manoj being at the same
time proposer of the amdendment in question, doing the call for vote, being
the secretary, and holding the delegation of the DPL to shorten the vote.

Nice, so, i want to know what you think is the effect of the resolution you
voted ? Will we keep the non-free firmwares, or not, some of them, and if so
which ? And what is it you actually wanted.

Ok, please read this mail :
Which should make all the differences very clear.

Sure, which is why i started new threads for important stuff, and why i tried
to send the above to d-d-a, but someone along the way diverted it. Not sure
why, and if they abused their powers to do so though.
