Can you elaborate on the intended meaning here? Is "position" their position to reinstate RMS, or their position as a member of the board?

Is this intentionally "consider" as opposed to "reconsider"? If so, is that intended to be a weaker form of reconsider?

Looking at the text as a whole, while there is talk of accountability, it's unclear to me what you actually want to happen. In contrast, I am able to understand the other choices: Choice 1 says RMS and the FSF board all need to go. Choice A/2 says we are taking no position as a project. Choice B/3 says RMS needs to go, and FSF needs to fix whatever allowed him to come back.

Is the general sense here that you would find it acceptable that RMS stays on the board, as long as he/they acknowledge past ("mistakes"|"impropriety"), "learn from them[,] and change behavior"?
