Though to hear about it second-hand, the corporations involved collectively
control it; that is, Sun, Ximian, IBM, Novell, and a couple of others all
have execs on the Gnome board and independant contributors don't get any say.
Mind you, this is from a Debian person bitching about it at LinuxWorld 2003,
so they may have been exaggerating ....
That's very different from our project, where corporations have sway over
their contributor-employees, and sometimes not even that.
