'Splinter Group' SFC (Already Sued by Moglen/SFLC) is Not Really Against Microsoft GitHub, It Helps IBM/Red Hat Outsource GNU to GitHub Using the Same Excuses Microsoft Used When Lobbying for to Move to Proprietary GitHub

The coup did not end

Mark J. Wielaard hijacking

Mark J. Wielaard and SFC

Summary: After changing copyright assignment (for IBM et al to control GCC at the community's expense) Mark J. Wielaard, who repeatedly tried to oust the FSF's founder from the FSF (and GNU), is turning to the SFC, a greedy corporation that censors IBM critics while it also tries to undermine the FSF (Moglen/SFLC already sued the SFC)

Thanks. I am really happy you are actively involved. I also want to thank Bradley and Karen from the SFC for calling into the discussion. But the discussion at Cauldron seemed really chaotic, I have trouble trying to summarize it. I posted my original discussion notes and first impressions here:

We agreed to continue the discussion on this mailinglist. Hopefully that will be a little more productive and structured.
