Johannes is definitely a active member of the GNOME community, and in
my opinion the work he has been doing to make it possible for new
developers to come and use our platform is underestimated (Anjuta,
the dev doc tools hackfest, the continued work on platform demos,

Therefore I don't think you should dismiss what he wrote, as if he had
just a vague knowledge of our community, mimicking his message as
"there's a Red Hat conspiracy".

And a second point is that it may not be easy to give examples, not
because they do not exist but because we may hesitate to bring the
involved persons in the discussion without their consent. (I don't
know if it's the case for Johannes, it's certainly my case).
