Post Syndicated from corbet original

While Richard Stallman has resigned from the Free Software Foundation and
MIT, he continues to hold onto his position as the head of the GNU project. Now, the FSF has announced that it is
working with GNU leadership on a shared understanding of the
relationship for the future
” and is seeking comments from the
community on what that should be.

Meanwhile, a group of maintainers for specific GNU project has posted
a joint statement
calling for new leadership at GNU. “We believe
that Richard Stallman cannot represent all of GNU. We think it is now time
for GNU maintainers to collectively decide about the organization of the
project. The GNU Project we want to build is one that everyone can trust to
defend their freedom.
