Absolutely not, you and I have had multiple exchanges on this list so 
far and I'd have trusted you to take my statement above in the correct 
context.  I did not even negate your statement when you stated that the 
overseers would support seamless migration of services over to LF IT and 
in fact supplemented[1] by saying that the transition would likely take 
years.

You literally have an email on the list with the subject like "Moving 
sourceware to the Linux Foundation? no thanks".

It's funny that you're asking me to shut up and also implying that my 
messages are hostile.
