@arh and then, suddenly, the KNMI, which is a weather forecast institiute. That's weird, I wouldn't expect them in that list.

@doenietzomoeilijk well that list is by affiliation, means the person who is working on is affiliated with them.

@arh

Well, it explains a lot about the current lack of transparency in the government of #GCC, doesn't it?

But if you call them out about this, they call you concern troll.

Been there, done that: gcc.gnu.org/pipermail/gcc/2021

To #US people diversity really means "all rich Americans, but hey! of different #race and #gender!"

And when it regards the right group of middle-class male US corporate guys, it stops being a problem at all.

@arh Honestly, that looks rather concerning. Yes, corporations attract talented people, but at the same time, who says something weird won't happen in SC?
