Ok, maybe this part of the minutes wasn't worded the best. The actual
decision was to suspend sponsorship until we believe that the issues
that lead to our suspending of sponsorship are resolved, to date that
hasn't happened yet.
Personally I believe that the act of withdrawing all future sponsorship
sends a stronger message to the main people we need to send a message
being the FSF Board then any statement or words that we may say. I can
understand that you or others may have a different opinion on that, I
also understand that there are a significant number of other
organizations that are not in the position of having donated to the FSF
or one of there events in the recent past and as such I can understand
them feeling the need to signal there disapproval in other ways.
Indeed "all sponsorship is withdrawn until standards are met" is a
But that is not what has been posted, at all. Especially given "for the
time being" comes with a clear meaning of "for the present, and for a
short time in the future"
So the minutes as they are written sure make it easy to read that it's
the Boards intention to reestablish sponsorship sometime in the future.
Which wouldn't be a strong message.
Thanks for the clarification - might I suggest the minutes is corrected
to more accurately reflect the Boards decision?
Sure, i'll raise that with the board sometime after I sleep.
