The GPL v3 process is open (and open to all). Linus has his avenue of commenting, like anyone else. Instead all these "mine" not accommodated, not at "my" convenience, not letting "me" seeing the first draft first, etc. (where me, mine, my is Torvalds) Who is really doing harm here?
There is an year for making comments. Yet Torvalds just sit there without adding his comments. And he said others know his email address. Is it hard for him to add some text to a web form? Instead he flames with PJ and makes silly statements to the press. Making a whole paragraph belittling the FSF over a simple clarification. He shows no willingness of direct communication and it is either Linus' way or the highway.
The FSF has shown more maturity in the process than Linus show. Linus is, honestly, behaving childishly.
