I'm not a #GNU contributor, but I still dream for a day where there is respectable leadership at the top.
I would want the leader of the GNU project to not pull aside the recipient of an annual award, just before going on stage, and suggest that the leader was hoping the recipeint's project was software to promote sexual promiscuity and/or infidelity.
@JordiGH The first one happened to me personally. The second, one of the well known events. The third, summarizes the reactions over the past several weeks. Obviously, if someone wants more case studies, they are abundant throughout the Internet.
But far better to focus on what attributes future leadership should have. IMHO #FLOSS leadership is as much or more about interpersonal aspects as it is technical skills.
