RMS pulls a serious power move (read: dick move), unilaterally appointing a maintainer to Guile without consulting the other co-maintainers or community, because the current co-maintainers disagree with him on governance lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gui


It's strange to hear that maintainers of free software projects could be simply "appointed" like this, and regardless of the fact that it is (allegedly) RMS, it sounds strange in itself and shows there is a problem. What does it mean in practice? Commit access?

If Mark "appointed" himself, that is even more strange.

I thought it was the sole responsibility of the current maintainers.
