As the "leader" here I feel responsible for what goes on on the lists and I 
do apologize for the statements that were made about people not knowing 
diddly about OpenSource and people trying to hurt LFS. I didn't agree with 
those statements made as much as you did. But can we all be grown up about 
it? People have been hurt, insulted, offended and I don't want that to happen 
again, not in the way it happened the past days. I'm sure we all have said 
things were are sorry about. 

How about we try to put it behind us and live in peace again?
