If the GNOME Foundation is considering inviting members of the
community to use Bountysource to communicate with the Foundation, that
raises two ethical issues:

* Privacy.  This would result in giving Bountysource people's personal data,
which it shouldn't have any right to know.

* Free software.  Many web sites require visitors to run nonfree
software to use some or even all of the functionality.  See  Does Bountysource
work without nonfree JS?  I don't know, but one can't presume that.

  Use Ekiga or an ordinary phone call.
