Does your position represent that of SUSE?

Andreas is a project steward, and GNU project maintainer, so we still need
his input on this issue. We will need to wait for him to come back and

Lastly, your objection is recorded, and that you will not block consensus
on this issue e.g. "deal with most things." Thank you for your input.

whole browser in the bootstrap ;-)
