I second this GR.

I understand people might not *agree* with it, but I still think it's
worth discussing it more, especially in the open.

I also feel there was a consensus over the *spirit* of the proposal
here, if not the letter. It seems we all *not* want Debian to speculate
on donated assets. Yes, maybe there's a better way to phrase this, but
let's not make perfect the ennemy of good and start tackling this
problem because, right now, we still *do* have that problem and I don't
see any other action taken to solve it.


For once you have tasted flight,
You will walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward;
For there you have been,
And there you long to return.
