No, it's not.  I simply don't care about the current hobby horse being
ridden through debian, gNewSense and other free software projects.  My
question was a related point, but I don't claim it's based on
understanding the entire strange topic.

To convince me it's worth caring about the topics raised under this
heading, try not posting unsupported comments like

Do not post only that.  It borders on trolling.

What happened and what have you done about it?  I've not seen any
problems with OFTC reported on the SPI membership lists and I've not
seen SPI denying OFTC is something to do with it.  At first, problems
should be handled through OFTC's structures.

If this is a FAQ for you, link a previous list post or one of your own
web pages.

Well, there isn't.  If you choose to use Google, you must accept some
responsibility for its many defects.  If you're not willing to do
that, stop using it.
