There's no point to be rude from me because I was on the table when
the face to face discussion happened. We care about software freedom
and we have agreed that we choose to keep SFC's position for the good
of free software ecology, so in turn we agreed to ship ZFS in contrib
(which is not an official part of Debian) for the best of our users
and community.
"Our priorities are our users and free software", and the current
status quo is what we can do to make sure both our users and free
software are not disregarded from being our priorities. I believe this
is in no way untrue.
