SubjectRe: [opensource] Re: Petition Against Official Endorsement ofBitKeeper by Linux Maintainers
From
I totally and utterly agree with you.  They have every right to ignore 
the petition, but those we signed it were acting out their right of
freedom of speech. I know all the people who signed it, and none of
them likely would force ANYTHING on anyone. Rather then looking at this
as an ultimatum, look at it as a request. Negative responses only lead
to more negatives responses back, and nothing EVER comes out of flame
wars, ever. Except worthless air being wasted by the likes of some.

cheers,
