Hold on... You're suggesting that instead of creating a document with this
content, we should update another document with this content. Interesting
idea [1], and certainly food for thought, but... totally dodging the point
of the discussion!

Can we stop arguing about *where to put it* and *what to call it*, and go
back to talking about what should go in it, and the shared values we want to
express? :-)

[1] I do think it's a good thought, but I think it would be more appropriate
for a document like this to be a separate statement of values for the *GNOME
project* rather than part of the legal principles and charter of the *GNOME
Foundation*. Indeed, if you're scared about this being some kind of OFFICIAL
LAW OF GNOME, then you should be doubly concerned about it being legally
binding. ;-) And at that point, anyone could say "but I'm not a Foundation
member, therefore it doesn't apply to me".
