#GNOME40 #releaseday #OpenSource

@gnome Why is #OpenSource tagged here?

I thought GNOME was an official GNU Package and using the term “Open Source” is not in accordance with GNU Free System Distribution Guidelines?

@SuperDicq @gnome GNOME has never been a part of GNU. The only relations the two ever had, was GNU endorsing GNOME.



While GNOME has been independent for quite some time and grew quite big as a project, and none of it matters now, at minimum; there _was_ a relationship in the past.

@maryjane @alatiera @SuperDicq

GNOME never has been a GNU project. The GNOME Foundation has repeatedly asked the GNU project to remove GNOME from their list of modules for the past two years, and didn't get a response.

@gnome @maryjane @alatiera @SuperDicq im confused... :confused: what does that exactly mean is it the old free/open source discussion? or are we talking about something eles?


Thanks for clarifying, I used the expression: "there _was_ a relationship in the past."

Instead of: It was a GNU project,
exactly to avoid stating something that might be wrong.

But yes, thanks for clarifying and the details.
