That is good position, there is no need to politicize private opinions
and mix it with projects, it looks bad in public, and is also not true
representation. Even if it is related to RMS, those are still personal
issues related to various other politics that are not free software.

But GNU projects are common and interesting and bring people together
because we don't include other politics. That is where trouble starts.
