Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

It wasn't false........nor was it true. All we know is that there had been some complaints about the content of some blog posts on Planet Gnome, but we don't know which specific blog posts.


Behdad made it very clear that the trigger was not Miguel.

Why would it need to be about RMS and the FSF? The discussion was squarely about Gnome's place as a FSF project, despite the avenue that you chose to go down.


Probably because RMS weighed in in his role as FSF bigwig.

Why? That has absolutely nothing to do with the article or the e-mail thread in question. Your inane ramblings and opinions are not germane to the events in discussion.


Half of this site is Thom's editorials. If you don't like that, I have no idea why you read it. There are plenty of other news sites out there that are far less subjective.
