Why not make a definitive proposal so that the council doesn't just have
to figure one out on the fly - that will probably lead to faster closure
(and give people something to throw darts at if they hate it). Here is
Default is ACCEPT_LICENSE="* -@EULA".
My intent isn't to divert the discussion into this thread (everybody who
cares is reading the other one I'm sure). However, the basic point is
to propose one thing and then let everybody throw stones at it, so that
they know what will happen if they don't complain. If you word it
appropriately nobody will be offended that you're proposing a solution.
Then the council can just look at the list and see no big flamewars and
just approve it, rather than debating what it should actually be.
Also - I wouldn't consider it a negative thing that your proposal hasn't
gotten as many replies as glep55. You have proposed a small and
(mostly) well-defined change to gentoo and if nobody complains then we
should run with it!
