Thanks for everyones feedback. First of all let me apologize for this
ending up as a big flamefest and newsitem, I never intended for it to be
anything but a genuine request for feedback from the members of this
list. Personally I admire RMS and think he has done and is doing great
work, but in this case I disagree with him.
I take the feedback I have gotten on this list and in private that the
summary is currently being done in a fashion that the vast majority of
the GNOME community feel comfortable with.
I can only speak for myself of course (although I think Steve and I are
pretty much in agreement on this issue), but I will try to mention that
it is non-free software that is being discussed when such topics is
being covered from here on, but apart for that I will continue with my
present course (which I think currently stands at 1 or maybe 2 mentions
of non-free software total).
Thanks for your feedback, and once again I apologize for the unneeded
noise and spectacle this little issue has generated.
