I admit I has missed this last information earlier. However, I believe
I have explained this concern in a reply to Jody. Not helping
directly, of course, but as Ian puts it, this is a political/
perception fight, and an indirect one, hence the concern.

No, of course. Except the "backed by FOSS people" bit, since what
Gnome & Jody did in this occasion seemed to me almost the opposite of
it. That's why I put this issue and my general, absolutely personal
opinion of how these things should happen in the same post.
