	My apologies. I had not  known that David Dawes' name was removed 
from the list on Feb 6. As a member of X.Org, representing XFree86, his name 
was on the original list. I assumed it was still there.
	But I think we've better things to do...

>I also think that many many important discussions are happening on your 
list.  Lately this one of how VNC is linking against a non-GPL library is of 
the utmost concern to all of us who are or were in the open-source 
community.  I think Mr. Robinson and Mr. Packard are speaking with authority 
on this subject and this authority should be something we can all learn 
from.  What does happen when such a violation happens?  What do we do?   
These are questions I have.  I am sure others have the same.
>I think many of Mr. Robinson's missives to be of great import.  I think it 
only right and just that when he or anyone else of your list refer to David 
and technical issues that pertain to XFREE86 that they be cc:'d.  You do not 
have to be a subscriber, I was not originally when I sent all my bad email, 
just a lurker thru the archives, but I joined when several good men sent me 
messages that I was failing in trying to keep everyone in communicado and I 
wanted to get these bad email firsthand.
>I humbly request that these important, and I think very important, 
technical discussions not be amongst some wise men but all wise men and 
particularly with XFREE86 since it is their technical base with which you 
are discussing.
