Gentlement, let's keep quiet.

First, let's try to trust in each other.
Then I would like to recall you only the active authors will have the
right to vote, if we ever need to do this.

I think you are too much partisan of commercial restriction, and David
is too much partisan of pure free software.

The question is not what we want but what the other authors want.

I'd also like a freedom of use for the LDP documents, including
commercial reprint and translation without formalities, but I will try to
be impartial on this issue until a decision has been taken.

I suggest you to do the same, you will have time to show your arguments,
both very interesting and valuable.
