   maybe it ticks too many boxes... It is not quite a "short, concise
   document". And it is also mostly technical. What is missing is the spirit
   of the expected contributions, what it is all about, rather than a
   technical guide of what to do in what situation. It is definitely not a
   document which could found a community.

But that is the thing -- GNU maintainers don't agree to anything other
than technical aspects.  The GNU project isn't about founding a
community, it is about creating a free operating system.
