Fellow hackers Andy Wingo (of Guile) and Mark J. Wielaard (of Classpath, GCC, and more) share their thoughts after the decision of @fsf to reinstate RMS:

@civodul As usual, nice writings! I agree with @wingo that I cannot sign because I am not yet willing to take MPC out of GNU. The last part is interesting as well; if I understand correctly, the claim is that the @fsf is clinging to the past for fear of a bright future.

@andreas Looks like “too late, too little” though.

How can the very group who essentially betrayed FSF members and the broader movement be trusted? How can a promise for more transparency be trusted, when this organization has been so opaque forever?

I think the whole board as well as voting members need to resign.
