Such a vote, whatever the outcome, would have little effect on the GNOME

The debate during the vote could cause a lot of harm & discord for the
GNOME community.

An outcome whereby GNOME is no longer a GNU project could cause a lot of
harm to the free software and open source movements in general - there
would be massive negative publicity.

Since there is very little up-side and substantial down-side, both real
and in terms of image (which is an important consideration, I think), I
do not think that we should vote on this issue.

Don't we have more concrete issues to address?
