The only conclusion I can come to after reading this thread and the
thicket of jumbled concepts on the web pages is that this is an
"attention-sink" meant to distract the rest of us from going about our
business of building successful free software businesses.  I could further
speculate on motives but I really don't care to be drawn into this mess.

luck on this, and hopefully he doesn't drag down the FSF's name in the

Congratulations to Red Hat, btw, on making it to break-even!  There is
hope for the rest of us, yet.  <applause>
