        While I find your tone far too confrontational, I'll do you the
 courtesy of answering politely.

        Ultimately, what the Debian project does, as a whole, is hte sum
 of what the individual members believe. And if we all do not have the
 same interpretation abd beliefs, the stance of the Debian project is,
 well, a composite, of sorts, of individual beliefs.

        I think we should indeed fix them. And we should not really
 release a stable version with known DFSG violations in it.

        Which, I suppose, goes for you too.

        While unnecessarily confrontational, and, in a sense, attacking
 the man, not the idea, (which is a logical fallacy in any argument) I
 guess this goes for you as well. Indeed, more so, since impolite emails
 are likely to cause even more time spent other than fixing bugs.

        Can we please stop these "in your face" emails, and return to
 civil discourse, or, failing that, not post at all?
