@dthompson I'm glad it it starts with the "the GNU project does not exist" meta-point. I've been confused about that, so it helped to see it explicitly included in the discussion here.


That is true only if you divorce #GNU software development from its philosophy. That sound like what Torvalds sees in the #GPL. That is open source.

Which would make even the free/libre tag a charade, while mutilating the GNU name.

#GNU philosophy, and #RMS keeping a bead on what's admitted under the umbrella, is what gives it meaningfulness.
