    I've never heard of it before, but the very first thing in the first issue that catches my eye is a mostly incorrect attack [] on (he posted the same article on Advogato [] a couple of months earlier). He accuses VA of attempting to lock users into, which is not, and never has been, even remotely true; in fact, the opposite is true, as has always made major portions of the data available (including the project cvsroots), and while they had broken and not fixed export of bug reports etc., did nothing at all to stop or discourage third-party tools to extract the data. He says is a showcase for non-free software, despite the source code to the version of SourceForge that runs the web site being available under the GPL. These items and more were corrected in replies to the Advogato piece, but continue on in the printed piece from two months later. So I am not too interested in mentioning it, let alone reading any more of it. It's just more nonsense from RMS and his fanboys, apparently.
