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