I have nothing but questions over this.

  • Are you suggesting the Linux Foundation doesn't want Sandler on their board, because of some circumstantial lawsuit over licensing violations?

  • If the above is true, are you saying the Foundation is changing their bylaws to prevent a singular person from potentially entering the board?

  • Are you suggesting this person is a threat to the Foundation somehow?

  • Are you saying the Linux Foundation has no board members in favour of GPL enforcement? If so, would one or even two community-elected board members have significant power over the Foundation's roadmap and actions? I can see no significant action in the bylaws that requires anything less than a majority.

  • Are you writing about the same Karen Sandler who eliminated the cash reserves of the GNOME foundation?

  • What are you really writing this for?
