As a long-standing member of this community (I was active on FSFE 
mailing lists yearvs before I became a Fellow, now Supporter, in 2009) I 
see nothing in the current debate that indicates the abrupt replacement 
of the president or other key figures, let alone "dramatic" changes.

I think we should think constructively and always ask ourselves the 
question: How does this benefit Free Software the most? I don't see the 
current debate on this list as very conducive to anything.
