Yesterday Sam stated that the TC would first require a ruling from the
FTP team for being able to overrule it. The result is #839801.
This is exactly why I am saying the TC should structure the discussion.

I would assume good faith.
My impression is that there are several problems mixed with only the
most obvious one inititially discussed, and that the best way forward
would be if a TC member would look at the packages in question as well
as what terminology is used in the JS world.
You really need someone who will also look for issues like #830986
to actually get first-hand knowledge.
It would also be good if that person could get an understanding which
of these problems would be fixed when Grunt is packaged.
And then also looks at cases like Perl or SQLite.
Any TC member should be able to do that in 1-2 days, and then
there would be a proper description of the problem that could
serve as basis for an actual discussion of the problem.
