You seem to like debating jujitsu and to deflect the point, most
observers can see this whether or not you think so, and they draw their
own conclusions.

MJ Ray was stating that the Debian position was
1) Not what you claim
2) Very open and easy to see, and by comparison more open than FSF

Your interesting response is:
Ah, but for all we know while we are secretly buying lotus notes, you
are molesting gerbils.

The point is, Debian are more open than FSF, and by such openness the
Debian position on Contrib et al is very clear.
