We, Debian, must learn from it.

 * rms was kicked from FSF board
 * rms is back at FSF board

To me it says:
 * There was a time that FSF did internal repairs
 * Current FSF is unaware of their stink

We, Debian, do our internal repairs, we deal with errors[1],
are aware of what our smell is and what our smell will be.

I haven't checked yet all vote options. I will find
an option like

  the membership of other organisations is not our concern

or have to create such option.

Note to all who think I should choose a side:

  It is about choosing whom to work with,
  not to judge with whom not.

A better world starts from within.
