The discussion period was started because of the "special case" and is
meant to be "automatically triggered" anyway. Keep in mind that even
if this discussion ends in a vote (which it looks like it won't)
you're free to vote no, that's why it's a vote.

After some of the replies I read yesterday I was feeling good about
this thread and was hoping we could work something out where sergej
lets go of at least some of his packages but it seems like that's not
going to happen any time soon. Sergej, you're saying you're willing to
give up some of your packages but you're doing it in a way that people
won't want bother and where you still keep as many as possible, what
is the deal? You're so dead set on keeping as many as possible but

I know I'm also guilty of putting some probably unnecessary packages
into community but how about we try work something out with the way we
put new packages into community? At the moment TUs are allowed to put
whatever they like into community without notice to anyone, perhaps
this needs to stop and we need some order about how we do things?
While we wouldn't need to be as stringent as the devs about this it
might be a good idea that set up something like an email of packages
we want in community as well as some grace period before that. Perhaps
we need to start a new thread about this.

I don't think I've seen that good of an argument yet as to why sergej
should keep so many packages or why it is not a good idea to have
orphans, even if it means a lot of them. Emailing sergej to see if you
can grab a couple of packages is *not* the correct way to go about
this, I don't want any and the reason I brought this up isn't because
I'm jealous of what he has. Please, come up with some proper arguments
instead of being so wishy-washy and backing both of us up.
