    Phoronix: GNU Project Developers Debate A Restructuring As A "Bottom Up" Organization

    GNU developers unhappy with Richard Stallman sticking around as head of the GNU Project and not planning to make any "radical" changes are now expressing their desire for the GNU to be restructured as a "bottom-up" organization whereby those active developers and volunteers involved could potentially have more say...

      You know, that shouldn't happen. Richard Stallman should always stay at the top of the project, and not be influenced by those who want to insert politics into code!

          This mostly means that all related GNU code has to be forked (and renamed), since most GNU projects are (c) the GNU foundation. This may work in the long run, but it looks like an incredible waste of time.

              RedHat couldn't wait to pounce on RMS. This is my shocked face.

                It seems from previous stories that the anti-Stallman brigade is a fringe minority of GNU contributors. By all means, if they have an issue with the person at the top of the chain they are welcome to fork and do their own thing independently. In many cases, the project might be stronger without their participation.

                  I know someone that is very happy with this whole situation:



                  "yes, yes, Satya managed to infiltrate and destroy the 'cancer' that I never managed to defeat."

                    I think that a project has a future only if those who work there have some prospects, I am always in favor of democracy within projects, GNU is not of Richard Stallman, otherwise it would be a proprietary project, which is even worse than proprietary software.
