Re: I'm orphan my packages and leave the project as maintainer

The FSF with out RMS would be like the Linux Foundations with out
Linus. With their personality quirks it is sometimes hard for some
people to like them but at the end of the day they get the job done.
RMS has done alot for FLOSS it would be sad to see his contributions
come to a halt but he can always write software and contribute that
way I guess.
