I think Óscar's questions have been answered.  I think he has also made
it quite clear that he doesn't fully understand the goals of the GNU
project.  For instance, in one post, he bemoaned the fact that GNU's
wasn't focusing on "users" even though "users" were its greatest focus.
Richard responded with, IMO, a good example comparing Skype helping
users but not helping users freedoms.

Hopefully Óscar understands the GNU project better with this thread.
That will be, IMO, the only good thing to come out of this huge


Gnus should be more complicated.
