   No.  GNU is the system that the GNU project is putting together.

No? So Emacs isn't part of the GNU system?  Do you mean that Richard
never ever _really_ intended Emacs to be part of GNU system? And that
it was an evil plot to make you act in this absurd way?

   Parts of this system are actually developed by the GNU projects,
   others are just assembled. "to develop a complete UNIX like operating system"
I don't see anything about being assembled.  Care you quote?

   It is mere aggregation for GNU/Hurd as well, with some adaptation
   (like of the BSDlite networking utilities) to boot.

That is nice, I'm talking about the GNU operating system as developed
by the GNU project, which is sponsored by the FSF.  Which is what you,
and I, are working on.  I find it amazing that a long time GNU hacker
as yourself has no knowledge of what GNU actually is.
