hi Ashwin,

I only replied in that manner since Anivar made use of the 'in the
FOSS movement' term which implies seperation. Given that, please
advise me in how my email could be worded otherwise. It becomes
difficult to make sentences where a temporary seperation might be
needed to make an argument.

In the wider perspective, the OSM movement has several parts and they
have their acronyms. When Wikipedians want to address all open source
guys, we use the term OSM.

Also, be assured, I had nothing against the clarification - which was
asked and given. I think the matter should have ended there. I
expressed my opinion on that fact.

warm regards,
Pradeep
Handheld
