I'd like to explain more clearly what I meant by my last message.

First, it's important to remember that we share a common goal: the
creation of freely licensed computing systems. The people involved in
the Guix and linux-libre projects have worked hard for years towards
this goal — most of us as volunteers.

For many of us, it's natural to identify with our work, and when people
suggest changes or offer criticism that we think is incorrect or misses
the mark somehow, it's also natural to have negative feelings in

But, we must remember that the other party may not understand the
context of their suggestion deeply enough to know why it should not be
implemented. There are technical *and* social contexts at play, and they
are rarely understood until one has been working on the project for
quite a while.

We should be generous and charitable when interpreting each other's
messages and goals.
