Thanks, Clint. This is the attitude that I expected to find coming
here to talk about collaboration. No one has to care what the FSF
thinks in order to care about freedom. Right now, I think I can trust
FSF to care about my freedom, but there is something a bit more noble
then that about people like yourself who care about freedom for the
sake of its own merit. I know there are a lot of Debian developers and
maintainers who feel the same way, too.

Karl called me out about that in my thread. He's right that a lot of
my discussion is very critical of Debian. But he would also be right
in saying that my criticism is more or less directed at a subset of
it, rather than the whole. Nonetheless it is a very dubious subset
begging for more then a little critical examination.

I described such people in another mailing list post as "lazy and
impressionable technologists trying to be trendy."
