You see how Alfred is doing. He puts Ludo down, Ludo is not getting
it, I am really surprised. But then after researching his speeches,
and websites, he never was mentioning free software as philosophy, he
was always speaking of technical features of software as engineer.
He never got understanding what means free software philosophy and
what is actually GNU project.
Now when Guix is basically having a lot of contributions, he really
started thinking he could take GNU project over.
I would be fine with it, would he speak of free software and not
defame founder -- but now and forever, it cannot be fine.
Do it as Alfred, show him his place in right way, so that arguments
speak, not profanity.

Subject: Re: A GNU =E2=80=9Csocial contract=E2=80=9D?
We could define =E2=80=9Cmember=E2=80=9D as someone who signed the socia=
l contract, but
that=E2=80=99s probably not enough: a group of people could make a hosti=
takeover by signing it en masse. So there needs to be some form of
cooptation to avoid that, as is commonly done in organizations.
A GNU project member, be them contributors, or maintainers, have never
been required to sign anything to consider themselves members of the
GNU project. Asking them to do so now would be unfriendly and counter
productive. The sentence that GNU members have agreed to anything
should be dropped completely, because that is not true.
In the GNU project everyone is welcome, even people who do not share
the goals and philosophy of the GNU project.
I guess that leads to a new sub-task: defining the procedure to
become a =E2=80=9Cmember=E2=80=9D of the project.
You send a patch, you contribute documentation, you work on Savannah,
you don't sign or agree to anything to become a member of the GNU
Please stop creating barriers, and hinders for people to contribute to
