I am a founding developer of Subversion.  Its other founding developer
is Jim Blandy, who worked for the Free Software Foundation and whose
devotion to free software is well known to you, Richard.  

The people who develop Subversion are no more a monolithic group than
the people who hack on GNU Emacs, and no more deserving of your
slander.  No, we don't make our developers sign certificates of
pure-heartedness before we accept their code contributions, but then
again neither does the FSF.  I don't know where you got this idea you
have about the Subversion team, but it's not right in the aggregate,
and is dead wrong about me in particular.  You're just carelessly
slinging around accusations based on vague impressions; it's
irresponsible and insulting.
