I did not say that. But it was said of the interview with Meeks, which 
we found out not to be true either.

If that is the feeling you get, there is something wrong.
I do not see any sense in criticizing the ASF, just because they have a 
different view. Seems you get hit by pieces flying around that belong in 
the IBM - TDF dispute ;-) Sorry about that, maybe a bit more precise 
wording (from me and others) here and there would help, but I'm not sure 
if it would fully prevent that happening.
