Thank you for updating the subject line for me! I should have done so
in my previous post.

I am pretty happy with that and I'd like to be part of a community
dedicated to free software. 

It's just that I was seriously shocked when I started getting [Dev]
*and* [libreplanet-discuss] pings mostly centered around wondering if
Parabola should respect Arch in disrespecting GNU. 

I personally think it shouldn't even be a question in a dedicated
community and it should definitely not require RMS' personal input.
Then we get questions discussing the use of proprietary SaaSS on

I do sincerely apologize for the bikeshed, I just couldn't help but to
raise a few eyebrows.
