The people involved in the GNU project don't get a say about this.  I
had an exchange with RMS just recently in letters to lwn.net where I
tried to get him to tell me just who constitutes the GNU project so
that one could ask their opinion.

The turnout: nobody constitutes the GNU project.  People contributing
don't have a voice.  The voice of the GNU project is Richard
Stallman, and when he talks as "we" when talking about the GNU
project, he is not speaking on behalf of any persons.

So it is not his position that the people working on the GNU project
have a say on the naming issue.  It is, however, by virtue of their
work that _he_ has a say on this issue.

Make of this what you will.
