        I am not sure that is entirely accurate.  There has long been
 a community effort around gcc, emacs, gas, bison -- long before there
 was Linux, actually, and even before BSD 4.4 lite was released.  The
 FSF seeds various communities (FSF Europe, for one, comes to mind),
 which are fairly vibrant, and quite productive.

        Unfortunately, the same can't be said of the HURD.

Repel them.  Repel them.  Induce them to relinquish the spheroid.
