"the policies", hmmm.  Those would be 'your policies'.  Which may or may not
be what Marvin is attempting to compose.  Your form of evangelism could be
counterproductive to the audience who Marvin is addressing.  Unless you are
prepared to show data on "better" as well as "cheaper", this is all a very
hollow statement.

You are certainly welcome at the ASF no matter if you have a FLOSS-centric
or OSS-centric approach to source code, but enough proselytizing already.
