That statement, while technically true, is completely misleading. Prior to
the Foundation takeover, NetBSD developers were *not* "members" of the
Foundation, and had no legal standing to make such a decision. The actual
change of the bylaws and board of directors was fraudulent.
There was no excuse for this. It could have been done right.
