Hi Frans,

Although I disagree with you on firmware [1], I appreciate your responsible
attitude towards this.  There are many positions around the "firmware problem",
and I believe the only way we can reconcile them and stay together as a
project is by holding a healthy debate on it, and ressort to voting if it
wasn't possible to reach consensus by other means.

Thank you

[1] but, probably not as much as you think.
