Nope actually I did not. I was speaking for the Software industriy
incooperating Open Technologies. I dont want to blame that. If I would have
found the extreme position of RMS valid, I would have used to work for the
FSF or the Gnu Project, but I prefered to go along with Debian, because of
the much friendier Open Source definition.

The question is, why we should do that? Debian was the root source for the
Open Source movement. There is a certification program associated with that
movement and a open definition. Should we give up all that, even if the
definition already existed while we created the Social Contract.. should we
give that up and use the FSF Definitions? (Perhaps I missed it, but where
are the Pros for that switch? Wehere is the need to change anything?)
