Thank you all for working on this.

That's not working; working is writing code, debugging, documenting,

This monkey business of social contracts is just political sport.

People working on copylefted software need not share any "core values"
other than that copylefted software.

Someone working on the compiler front end can be a communist, whereas
the type checker could be hacked on by (necessarily) a fascist.

There is no need to have the same political views, listen to the same music
or anything else.
