Dear folks,

I really have to apologize after sleeping one night over that topic. I
feel a bit ashamed or intimidated; not sure if these are the correct
terms to express my feelings.

In short: My goal was to learn not to troll!

I am surprised that my comment caused such big changes. Of course I
appreciate them but I am a totally new and fresh user to the project in
the meaning I am not "important". But it speaks for the "vibes" of your
project and its flat hierarchies that you even take opinions like mine
into account so serious.

My initial "comment" about the GitHub-and-FSF-rules was just because
someone quoted that FSF rules. My goal with expressing my own
interpretation about that FSF-rules in context of your use of GitHub
was not to change/modify your project. I even do not know enough of
your internal rules and organization. I am not in position to tell
someone how to run their projects.

It was more a question about the current state (using GitHub in context
of the FSF rules) and the background of your decisions to learn more
about how to organize FOSS projects and FOSS rules. Let me say it again:
I tried to learn not to troll!

I definitely would say that the way I "asked" or expressed my humble
opinion about your GitHub-use was definitely wrong and to offensive. My
apologize again.

Thanks a lot for listen to me.
