Please note in your signature that this is the "Linux Documentation
Project".  It is not the "GNU Documentation Project" nor is it the
"Debian Documentation Project".

Also note that this a "documentation" project.  It does not infer that 
the software under discussion must come from any single source.  The
project pretends to be an aid to users of the Linux kernel, so why all 
the furor over what ever the source of the software?

This appears to be another example of the hypocrisy of "liberal"
politicians.  They make a lot of noise about how much they care about
others as long as the others comply to their selfish pursuits.

Believe me, this project is inundated with politicians and few
