Thank you for the input.  At least one board member who voted against
the readmission of Stallman has resigned, and it would seem that the
vote was actually among all the voting members, which includes the
board.  So it seems things are quite complicated -- should the call be
for all the existing voting members to be replaced?  I'm not sure, which
is why I suggested just saying something about what's most important,
which is the removal of rms.
