I second this (the message quoted below).   It isn't clear
to me that anyone has even asked RMS what he would prefer here.

If he attends, my thought would be that perhaps he can
hold a break-out talk or birds of a feather or just
group chat if he feels like it.  I assume (perhaps falsely)
that virtual Libreplanet somehow accommodates such things
for approximately any interested, adequately organized
group of attendees.

In a broader scope can't say I'm terribly happy about the way the FSF
has acted for a couple of decades now but that's a separate
issue from how it treats RMS.   Libreplanet, in my understanding,
is not really "about" either RMS or FSF.

   rms is on this list, so rather than just complaining that he doesn't
have a place of honor he could chose to do that, and if advertised at
   all, I suspect it would be well attended on that weekend.
I'm one of the biggest fan boys of Richard Stallman out there, to the point that his personal email reply to me regarding my tounge-and-cheek
   comment to me about whether or not i would have to be excommunicated
   from the Chruch of eMacs for having taken a job working towards teh
   development of freed denying non-free software in order to feed my
growing family, hung on my wall for years. I'd probably still be living paycheck-to-paycheck "selling" environmentalism door-to-door if not for
   the word of rms and the GNU project, and its commitment to freedom
   opening my eyes.
But too many folks here are dangerously close to falling into a cult of
   personality that doesn't even appear to be spearheaded by the cult
   figure himself.
