I had been involved in the conversations about the Free Software
Distribution Guidelines on both capacities as Free Software activist
at FSFLA and as Fedora user/irrelevant developer.

I answered the initial question, and one thing led to another.  It
certainly fed the fire that I'd been talking to Les Mikesell about his
misunderstanding of the GPL on fedora-devel.  I've been more active in
other Fedora lists, just not so much on the Fedora users' list.
