We know that the number of users with things installed is not zero. We also know that by following a simple migration path, that number can become zero in a way that doesn't result in any nasty surprises for anyone. That's all that the Council is being asked to agree on here -- that rather than nuking things without warning, we should warn affected users that they need to take action, and give them a reasonable about of time to do so before we go around deleting anything. - -- Ciaran McCreesh -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.11 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkslTKUACgkQ96zL6DUtXhFUvQCfTnPxSBE4VlyModvGk/PcHU7o iHAAnAgfmtLzPbFPncQ1DI2SCsntZ4ZI =q/A4 -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
