Evolution is Free Software.

I am not contributing to this discussion as a member of the GNOME Foundation
Board, I am contributing to it as an active member of the GNOME development
community. Additionally, I am not armwaving away serious issues, I've raised
a number of them myself. I *am* armwaving away the kind of manic, combative
accusations being made elsewhere in the thread.

I will follow up over the weekend with my opinions on the issue both
personally and with my Foundation Board hat on. You may wish to read back on
d-d-l to see some of them, posted before this discussion was so thoroughly
hijacked into flames and unreasonable accusations.
