Right.  I think we can agree on this.
To All: End Of Thread. (please?) (no on-list response required)

Please remember that each mail sent to this list goes to 33
people.  We should aim to keep mails on topic (FSFE), readably
short, and when a thread is going nowhere - bow out.

Again, if people have any _Free_Software_ issues that are
unresolved, _and_they_think_are_resolvable_, start a new
thread.  A day off is a good idea first though.
