Then don't read it. Me, I'm sick of reading personal attacks, but I
choose to read anyway out of responsibility.

The only individuals in a position to impose anything are Release Team members,
and I'm not entitled to force them to comply with the Social Contract; only
the project as a whole is.

Which is "my" resolution? You mean any of the options in which the developers
get to decide what we do about Lenny?
My hope is that whatever we decide, it is the result of the widest consensus

So do I. If the project grants them an exception to release Lenny (like we
did for Sarge and Etch), I'll support that too.
The DRM opt-in fallacy: "Your data belongs to us. We will decide when (and
how) you may access your data; but nobody's threatening your freedom: we
still allow you to remove your data and not access it at all."
