Linus' talk left a sour after-taste to me. Imho many of the things he
said or re-asserted to be committed to are not only not in spirit of
code of conduct but also go against our diversity statement on the
grounds of being non-constructive. And it's not even off-hand things
he said and took back, but rather things that required active scifi
creativity put into them and still hold ground after being challenged
at Q&A.

Can we get in touch with Linus' employer, the Linux Foundation, to see
if they are willing to make any public/joint statements?
