Did I say his statement was literally incorrect?  No.
My point was that it doesn't mean he is independent.

I did not appoint him directly.  I directly appoint only
package maintainers, who are then responsible directly to me.

Rather, the package maintainers of GNU libc recruited him to do
some of the work.  He is supposed to be responsible to them.

Apparently it was not explained to him that he was responsible to
the package maintainers who were responsible to me.
