I trust he is involved in the conversation.

GNU project as far as operational maintenance is concerned is almost completely decentralized, which is the argument we are making to make the case for making it officially so. And you seem to be comfortable taking both sides depending on how it suits your argument at that specific moment. > You live too much in the USA. In other countries we have respect to > elder.

It's a difference you either don't understand, or is something you're wary of because deep down you know that even though the GNU maintainer guide implies that contributors are not that important to the project, in real life they are.
