Another FSF developer swipes and leaves

Paolo bonzini, a project manager at the Free Software Foundation (FSF) led by Stallman, has decided to say goodbye to the organization after making public some differences with Richard Stallman.

Bonzini had been with the FSF for eight years and was responsible for maintaining the GNU grep y GNU but.

The decision to resign to continue working for the free software organization is due to technical and administrative disagreements with Stallman.

Bonzini acknowledges that Stallman helped with executive decision making because he was able to convince GNU maintainers, but has noted that his attitude was immobile.

Specifically, the developer indicates that Stallman did not let him improve the GNU coding standards and switch from the C language to C ++, which implies that those standards are obsolete.

Furthermore, Bonzini alleges that the FSF had no interest in promoting the GNU brand, which in his opinion was necessary as the foundation relied on multiple sources of work.

The truth is that the developer's criticism would not cease to be an isolated event if it were not for the fact that Niko Mavrogiannopoulos, in charge of maintaining GnuTLS, took the project out of the FSF a few weeks ago due to disagreements with the decisions and way of working of the organization .
