I find this use of “we” confusing.

I don’t feel motivated to apologize to the people involved in PureOS
because I wasn’t around when they were pressured / convinced to drop
Chromium.  I don’t know if any of the regular Guix contributors have.

In day to day Guix activities, we don’t ask developers of other distros
that also happen to subscribe to the FSDG to reach consensus before
making project decisions.  You are suggesting that FSDG distros form a
community beyond the sense that they abide by the same guidelines.  I
don’t think that’s reflecting reality.  It’s another thing to discuss if
this should be so.

With regards to the Chromium upstream bug report about the license
script and the suggestion that upstream doesn’t know what license their
code has, I’m satisfied with this comment:

The script appears to be not very successful in detecting valid license
declarations in third party code.  FWIW, in my opinion it would be
unreasonable to further delay Marius’s work from becoming part of Guix.
I see no violation of the FSDG here.
