I'd be as much or more concerned with 'political' interference at Savannah
as I'd be at SourceForge. This may come as a surprise, being that I am a
big GPL fan, but several of RMS' moves recently scare me. In addition to
the whole lignux / gnu/linux thing, consider this as well:
IMHO, Stallman has gotten a stick up his butt recently about being
'forgotten' by the open/free source community. As if that could happen.
What I really think is happening is that he is not the only big figure
anymore- the playing field has opened up, and lots more people have made
names for themselves- Linus, Miguel, Xavier (hey, I can dream, can't I?),
Not that SourceForge is beyond reproach by any strech of the imagination.
I'd be much happier with a box controlled by someone known on this list.
But as I don't have that box to offer, I haven't been offering an opinion.
