Ean, with all due respect, but I find your contributions to this discussion way below par as apparently you can't even be bothered to read the proposals under discussion. We are NOT discussing a blanket waiver of all DFSG or SC criteria for firmware. The only criterium that is considered for being waived in any practical sense is the one that requires source to be available for the firmware. So, given that we are just for example extremely unlikely to have the right to redistribute Windows Mobile, the answer to your question is a clear and totally undisputed by anyone NO. I would guess that including Windows Mobile would also violate several other of our principles that are not under discussion. So please take your pick. Now that that's been cleared up, can you please either keep your fingers off the keyboard for the remainder of this discussion period, or else start contributing to the discussion in an intelligent fashion? We already know what your position on the issue is, so there's really no need to keep repeating it (the same goes for some others BTW). TIA, FJP P.S. Please fix your mails. You are both breaking threads and CCing people that have not asked to be CCed.
