Re: GR proposal: give up on declassifying debian-private (Re: General Resolution: Declassifying debian-private results)
I think it would be best to seek further sponsors for my proposal.
If you like my version, or would like to see it on the ballot, please
Here it is:
> Formal proposal for amendment to Gunnar's GR: delete all, and replace
> Title: Acknowledge difficulty of declassifying debian-private
> 1. The Debian Project regrets the non-implementation of the 2005
> General Resolution titled "Declassification of debian-private list
> archives". That General Resolution is hereby repealed.
> 2. In case volunteers should come forward: Permission remains for the
> list archives (of any messages, whether posted before or after
> this resolution) to be declassified, provided that the
> declassification process is at least as respecting of the privacy
> of posters to debian-private as the process set out in the 2005
> General Resolution.
> 3. Furthermore, the Debian listmasters remain empowered (subject to
> the usual consultation processes within the Debian project) to
> revise the rules governing the privacy and declassification of
> messages to -private. This includes making measures to make
> declassification more widely applicable, or easier to automate.
> 4. But, any weakening of the privacy expectations must not be
> retrospective: changes should apply only to messages posted after
> the rule change has come into force.
> 5. In particular, we reaffirm this rule: no part of a posting made to
> -private, which explicitly states that it should not be
> declassified, may be published (without its author's explicit
> consent). This rule may be changed by the listmasters (para.3,
> above), but only for future messages (para.4, above), and only
> following consultation, and only with ample notice.
> 5. Participants are reminded to use -private only when necessary.
> -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----
> Version: GnuPG v1
> -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----

If I emailed you from an address @fyvzl.net or @evade.org.uk, that is
a private address which bypasses my fierce spamfilter.
