I've been following the madness at the #GNU project since last September and it's quite awful. The effort by some GNU maintainers to make it inclusive, first with a joint statement and more recently with a collaborative social contract has been received with a lot of hate and spite by Stallman's lackeys to the point of turning list moderation into aggravation
Personally I don't expect anything good from the GNU Project. From an outsider perspective the situation shows that the rot will not cease when Stallman leaves the project.
I only hope that the people that are currently doing this big effort in making GNU more inclusive don't burn out.
GNU is Not Unique, and much less the FSF. The Software Freedom Conservancy reacted promptly and assertively to Stallman's words last September.
Freedom is always a fork away.
