Re: Way forward with FSF

I see your point, but I don't think we really have many alternatives. The public commitment isn't a legal thing, but since eCosCentric is focussed on eCos users, pissing off the entire eCos community in one fell swoop isn't exactly likely to be part of the agenda :-) (and I wouldn't be here if it was even considered!). If the maintainers collectively decide on a different course of action eCosCentric would abide by that.

I'd say this needs publically stating as part of the agreement to
forward to FSF. Its the obvious question people will ask when
considering why we are doing this intermediate solution. There is no
guarantee it will all be sorted out with FSF and people want to know
what happens then.

Sure. It's also publically archived on this list :).
