IDK how to be positive about this anymore.
Both of the statements are defences of wrongdoing, no apology, no fucks given.
IMHO it's safe now to say that FSF is RMS' little toy house and it's a lost cause, and we're in urgent need of a replacement, or better, some replacements.
Looks like GCC folks are unhappy and discussing a serious course of action
@cadadr For me its clear. I won't contribute to any GNU project (haven't really done so far, so it isn't really a threat but the whole club is dead to me).
@holger IDK, AFAIK many GNU maintainers are not on FSF's side in this, but I also share the same feeling of.. alienation, let me say. For now I'll be watching how individual projects react and act accordingly.
I really hope at least Emacs and Guix people react harshly, maybe fork or something. I don't want to dump Emacs over this, but if it comes to that, I'm no stranger to hjkl 😜️

@cadadr More interesting discussion happening on the GNU Assembly mailing list: https://firstname.lastname@example.org/thread/SMFKD7M34VUTUW45MSO4UOWL4C7V5FQT/
@be Hmm, kinda looked like an alternate channel for some GNU maintainers to me. Is this an official channel of GNU/FSF?
