I am only asking for the technical solution. I think we
have discussed sufficiently that replacing this stuff
is possible but will take time.

I am also not setting any time frame for moving those files.
beyond that we should do it somewhen before release.

I agree it's not very motivating but in my defense it was
something that had to be discussed sooner better than later.

We can do packages of this stuff. It will even save time
from building over and over again the same stuff.

OK, this is something I really didn't intend. This was
meant to be discussed on a strictly technical level
without demotivating developers or calling "bloody
murder" on the project.

I hereby drop *any* claim that we may not be complying
with any relevant policy. Also to give full assurance
that I will not be problem to the project I will be
stepping down from the PPMC so my vote will not be
binding: I am really only interested in technical
discussions anyway.
