Debian e a resolução sobre as violações DFSG na futura Lenny

Não querendo entrar em querelas e sendo utilizador da distribuição Debian e de algumas das suas filhas, sidux, Kubuntu e Mint (todas em arquitectura AMD64), espero que a situação criada pela utilização de alguns pedaços de código que não seguem as definições do contracto social Debian, não coloquem em causa esta fabulosa distribuição.

Sinceramente não creio que ela esteja em causa é grande demais para isso, e uma vez que este projecto é muito democrático.

No entanto gostaria que a seu tempo, no tempo da Debian, ela acabasse por resolver estas pequenas questões e retirasse todo o código de firmwares que não cumprissem com as linhas de actuação quer da Debian quer da GNU.

Sendo assim acho que concordaria mais que se atrasasse a saída da Lenny, no entanto parece-me que a opção vencedora é um meio termo para a questão.

Obrigado Bruno por me teres chamado à atenção desta situação através do teu blog.

General Resolution: Lenny and resolving DFSG violations

Proposal A

Choice 1.
The actual text of the resolution is as follows. Please note that this does not include preludes, prologues, any preambles to the resolution, post-ambles to the resolution, abstracts, fore-words, after-words, rationales, supporting documents, opinion polls, arguments for and against, and any of the other important material you will find on the mailing list archives. Please read the debian-vote mailing list archives for details.
Reaffirm the Social Contract

1.We affirm that our Priorities are our users and the free software community (Social Contract #4);

2.We acknowledge that we promised to deliver a 100% free operating system (Social Contract #1);

3.Given that we have known for two previous releases that we have non-free bits in various parts of Debian, and a lot of progress has been made, and we are almost to the point where we can provide a free version of the Debian operating system, we will delay the release of Lenny until such point that the work to free the operating system is complete (to the best of our knowledge as of 1 November 2008).

Assume blobs comply with GPL unless proven otherwise

1.We affirm that our Priorities are our users and the free software community (Social Contract #4);

2.We acknowledge that there is a lot of progress in the kernel firmware issue; most of the issues that were outstanding at the time of the last stable release have been sorted out. However, new issues in the kernel sources have cropped up fairly recently, and these new issues have not yet been addressed;

3.We assure the community that there will be no regressions in the progress made for freedom in the kernel distributed by Debian relative to the Etch release in Lenny (to the best of our knowledge as of 1 November 2008);

4.We give priority to the timely release of Lenny over sorting every bit out; for this reason, we will treat removal of sourceless firmware as a best-effort process, and deliver firmware as part of Debian Lenny as long as we are legally allowed to do so, and the firmware is distributed upstream under a license that complies with the DFSG.
