Read this..... if you really like, you will find it in a library.

It is funny, you seem to be able to look into the future ;-)

Yesterday - one day after yor mail - it turned out that it _really_ was a
typo from the Register court in Bonn!

After correction of the typo by the register court in Bonn we currently
are "GMD Informationstechnik e.V. & Co. KG."

Unfortunately we cannot prevent the final step towards FhG in the near future.

But I see no relation between this fact and the previous discussion!

You should judge People by what they are doing and not from what organization
they are in - espacially when people are being forced to be in a specific
organisation le we will be.

	So please judge BerliOS from what we are doing!

Mr. Gorbatschow was a member of the commist party but is reponsible for
freeing Russia.

On the other side, when I look at this discussion, there are people who
may be members of FSFE but do things that harm the free-software/open-source

I hope we can have an unbiased and open discussion in the future....
