No, by all means, go on discussing until forever. We do need to come
to an end, though. And that's why I see it beneficial, if EPEL decides
to ban this until Fedora-land resolves it after the discussion comes
to an "end".

If there were consensus then there would *never* be a need for voting
(and that doesn't only apply to EPEL), right?

This is not about censorship, feel free to discuss until forever, I
just want to see it resolved, there is now a thorn twisted in EPEL's
side, and whatever the result of a vote would be it would at least
bring peace to my trouble mind. I'm sure others would like to see this
ending, too.
