Hi Alfred,

We didn’t harvest anything.  I think it’s reasonable for GNU maintainers
get in touch one another, and that’s unfortunately the only to do that
reliably AFAIK.

The email we sent invites all GNU maintainers to weigh in to get to a
version of the social contract that we could all identify with.

It’s about building a shared understanding of what it is we’re aiming
for as a project.  To me, that can only be beneficial to the project and
its cohesion.
