It wasn't me who proposed comparing software.

I think that's a strange metric. Users might want all kind of things
that we wouldn't want to offer, because of lack of resources, project
policies, etc. I think the question is "What can we offer (and want to
offer) while maximizing usefulness to the users?"

In this scenario, if the redistributor enables checking for GnuTLS
updates, who will distribute the DLL? The GNU project, or the
redistributor? If the latter, I'm OK with this proposal (the OFF part
is important, of course).
