   Except that it's not how the glibc community worked since it rebooted in
   2010-2011.  I don't remember an instance in the last almost decade of my
   involvement that a maintainer buckled down in the manner you seem to
   find acceptable.

Indeed, I don't find it at all reasonable how some glibc maintainers
buckled down, ignored GNU polices that they agreed to follow -- you
can take that as comment from a fellow glibc developer (even if only
on paper).  GNU maintainers take technical decisions, not decisions of

The GNU project is a project that is about software ethics and morals
first and foremost.  That includes objecting to absurd laws that can
affect our work, and our tradition has always been to make jokes out
of them.
