Написать письмо Ричарду Столлману


Сообщение Lubrox » 22 дек 2011, 18:54


Хотите написать письмо самому Ричарду Мэттью Столлману (RMS - Richard Matthew Stallman), отцу лицензий GNU GPL и LGPL, и спросить, узнать, задать вопрос, тогда ВАМ сюда.

I am not on vacation, but I am at the end of a long time delay. I am
located somewhere on Earth, but as far as responding to email is concerned,
I appear to be well outside the solar system.

After your message arrives at gnu.org, I will collect it in my next batch of
incoming mail, some time within the following 24 hours. I will spend much of
the following day reading that batch of mail and will come across your
message at some point. If I write a response immediately, it will go out in
the next outgoing batch--typically around 24 hours after I collected your
message, but occasionally sooner or later than that. Please expect a minimum
delay of between 24 and 48 hours in receiving a response to your mail to me.

If your message is hard to understand or responding takes real work,
the response could take longer.

So please wait 48 hours after sending a message before you resend it,
remind me about it, or ask if I have received it. If it has been less
than 48 hours, the absence of a response from me only means you have not
given me time to answer.

If you are having a conversation with me, please keep in mind that each
message you receive from me is a response to the mail you sent 24 to 48 hours
earlier, and when writing it, I probably had not yet downloaded your later

If you are in big hurry to speak with me, and one day's delay would be
a serious problem, you can ask my FSF assistant to phone me. Send mail to
<rms-assist@fsf.org> saying what you would like to talk with me about,
and giving your telephone number. You can also call the Free Software
Foundation office at 617-542-5942 (weekday Boston business hours) and
ask them to phone me on your behalf. If it's really important, try both!

An intermediate measure is to email me your phone number and ask me
to phone you.

But if there isn't enough hurry to warrant phoning me, please don't bother
the FSF people. The mail you already sent me will reach me before any mail
they could send me now on your behalf. I will respond as soon as I can.

If you do not wish to receive this message ever again, please send a message
to rms-autoreply-control@gnu.org with the subject "OFF".
Otherwise, you might receive a reply like this one up to once a month.

Столлман - человек адекватный, общается нормально и спокойно, русского языка вообще не знает, к тому же у него мало времени. Поэтому все письма нужно писать на английском языке.
Любит конкретные чёткие реальные, практические, НЕтеоретические вопросы, и без слов "предположим", "допустим", "а если", и т.д.
Экономит своё время, отвечает быстро и коротко, если это какие-то общие вопросы на вроде "Почему GNU/Linux вместо Linux?",... он просто даёт ссылки, ну это всё уже действительно расписано вдоль и поперёк.

Если Вы Столлмана уже совсем достали и он перестал отвечать, но вопросы по ГНУ и Линуксу ещё остались, в таком случае нужно делать следующее:

This message has been automatically generated in response to a
licensing question you sent to the Free Software Foundation, with subject:
"GNU License".

There is no need to reply to this message right now. Your request has
been assigned an ID of [gnu.org #717923].

Please include the string:
[gnu.org #717923]
in the subject line of all future correspondence about this issue. To do
so, you may reply to this message.

This address is answered primarily by volunteers, overseen by one staff
member of FSF. We have very limited resources to answer requests. We
urge you to first read the following material:

Licensing FAQ page: http://www.fsf.org/licenses/gpl-faq.html

Text of the GNU LGPL: http://www.fsf.org/copyleft/lgpl.html
Our license list page: http://www.fsf.org/licenses/license-list.html

If one of these web pages answers your questions, likely you will not receive
a reply from us. We sadly don't have the ability to re-answer questions
that we've answered already on our website.

When we are able to answer questions, highest priority is given to Free
Software developers in the community who are actively working on Free
Software projects and need licensing help.

We do offer consulting services for companies who are working to develop
products that incorporate Free Software so that they can do so in ways
that comply with the terms of the GPL and other Free Software licenses.
If you are interested in this service, please write a separate message to

Одна из самых интересных тем на форуме, хотя и совсем не по тематике, но по загадочным обстоятельствам пустая.

Кто писал, напишите какого рода были вопросы что получили в итоге
