I don’t intent to spent any time in advocating such service, but let me
at least cite a few ones. I apologize in advance to their authors if
they feel like the citation is seen out of context, msgid given so the
original message can be retrieved (there is a web archive, but it’s not
on debian.org machines. I find this web archive painful to browse,
thanks in advance if someone is able to provide an URL).

Anyway, if we were to endorse such service, I believe
debian-project@l.d.o would be the right place to have this conversation,
not a two-year long wishlist bug report log against www.debian.org.

The fact that other FOSS organizations are accepting such service is
really not a valid reason to waive this discussion (it would be like
pointing at other FOSS organizations that are advocating some licenses,
so Debian should accept them).

Maybe should that be fixed in the mean time.
