As it seems, that youʼve changed your mind at some point and no longer believe, 
that your ideological-driven ‘contract’ shall cover all GNU contributors, but 
shall be used to build some sort of elite within GNU, Iʼd like to append my 
list of concrete suggestions to make GNU more inclusive [0], drafted at you 
request, with one more important point:

* (1′) Do not openly classify volunteers basing on ideas they uphold.  Those, 
who find themselves to be legal second-class citizens of GNU because they do 
not share some RMSʼs views promoted to local credo, will not be very happy 
about that, even if they are not going to claim any leadership.
