Refering to V. Sasi Kumar's mail regarding the Chennai convention.. Was he
speaking as a layman or member of FSF-India board?
Does Anivar make his headline hijacking statements as a FSF-I member or in
his own capacity?
Is James Mathew not a FSF-I whole-timer?
In fact I saw the FSF-I Chairman sitting on the dais with Left leaders on
the first day of conference. I also remember the nuisance created on
multiple mailing lists prior to the conference.
Either way. All irresponsible statements are going to make you all OBSOLETE
as you may end up being a not-for-profit company without a people.
FSF-I still owes an explanation for this and previous issues and silence is
NOT an option.
