"Linus Torvalds had harsh comments about the committees
organized by the Free Software Foundation (FSF) to help it draft
version 3 of the GNU Public License (GPLv3). However, so far as
NewsForge can determine, none of those actually involved in the
process agree with Torvalds' assessment that the FSF isn't
listening to feedback.
"Shortly after the second draft of the GPLv3 was released,
Torvalds was quoted in a story by Stephen Shankland as saying 'The
FSF doesn't even seem interested in any feedback. They set up
several 'committees' to get comments from various industry players,
and everything I've heard about the process is that they then
ignored them all and did what they wanted anyway...'"
