Dear Rick and Steve,

I've thought again about all this, cooled down, and so on.  In
retrospect, I acknowledge that you were just trying to do your
information job.  We could discuss forever whether what you actually
wrote was the exact and complete truth, but that would probably
consist of much nitpicking and playing on words.  What's done is done,
let's get it over with.  I bear no grudge, and all that.

  I'm pleased that my rants have at least had the effect of raising
the awareness about Debian-SF among people who have some power to help
it raise in others.  Keep it up guys :-)
