Re: GNOME Foundation and FSF/GNU

Hi, I don't mean that FSF shall have control over the GNOME Foundation.
That's why I suggest the scenario of the GNU Project having two organizations:
the FSF and the GNOME Foundation. This will change the picture of GNU that 
normally associates directly with the FSF.
In the new scenario, RMS is the spirital leader of the GNU Project, 
regardless of his position as the president of the FSF, and he does not directly
run GNOME; the GNOME Foundation does.
