I don't know any of the involved in the discussions around, but I'm
quite sure, from my observer role in several "members-only" lists in the
ASF, that this dark side that you speak about does not exist. And it
would be extremely difficult to have it going secretly in a 130+ members
organization, with very diverse interests.

I only have a question that has been puzzling a lot me since this thread
