mentions "anti-software-patent activists are attempting a world-wide
event on the 24th of September as a world-wide day against software
patents" and asks "how about a personal word of support from the DPL
or support from the SPI? It is in direct area of interest for SPI -
software patents create an ever present threat of legal action against
any and all software in Debian (in USA and Japan, at least) and, as the
legal umbrella of Debian in the USA, SPI would be a prime target."

How about a statement?
