Ah, then I apologize for blaming David.

But given that you chose to move this discussion to -project@, I'd like
to extend to you the same questions I asked to David.

As I already wrote, I totally agree that Paypal is far from perfect,
and, if there were some FLOSS-friendly payment processors available, I
would love to see Debian advertise and use them. There's a simple path
to scratch that itch: help design FLOSS-friendly payment processors, and
help our TOs support them.

However, in the meantime, I don't think that the problems with Paypal
are a sufficient condition to refrain from using it. I actually see this
discussion as similar to the one about the use of CDNs: CDNs are more an
infrastructure issue than a free software issue; payment processors are
a financial issue, not a free software issue.
