We are calling for RMS to be removed from all leadership positions in the FOSS community, including the FSF and GNU, and for the FSF board to resign. Join us. https://rms-open-letter.github.io/
@adbenitez @ehashman What’s wrong with using GitHub to promote ideas in the FOSS community? You may not like it, and I will admit that it’s not exactly ideal that it’s owned by Microsoft, but it’s an integral part of the FOSS community nonetheless.
Also, I don’t see why doing something imperfectly removes someone’s right to complain about someone else in a position of much greater power doing something far worse.
@ehashman @zootoot The #Gitlab.com idea is even worse than #Github: https://git.sdf.org/humanacollaborator/humanacollabora/src/branch/master/gitlab-dot-com.md
@zootoot @ehashman @adbenitez MS #Github has a well-deserved "F" rating by the #FSF: https://www.gnu.org/software/repo-criteria-evaluation.html#GitHub. Using github is a lousy idea, and it's terrible for credibility because it demonstrates lack of understanding & commitment to the movement. https://github.com/humanetech-community/awesome-humane-tech/issues/33
Secondly, there’s no reason for you to have been so snarky with the “what the hell is wrong with you” in your first reply and the eye roll in the second.
@clacke @ehashman @adbenitez @zootoot I’d like to interject for a moment: a previous letter was hosted on libre infra https://guix.gnu.org/blog/2019/joint-statement-on-the-gnu-project/ and folks bashed it for being hosted on libre project because it’s not on topic.
Unless you are perfect there’s always a reason to re‑focus on nitpicks and do not address elephant in the room which is that *plenty* of libre software folks and *active* developers of libre software signed it and that number keeps growing.
This is a brand new server run by the main developers of the project as a spin-off of mastodon.social It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
