I see your formal point and of course you're right normally, but it's also a bit too easy.
The fact that people use the linuxaudio consortium for a fork of a fellow Linuxaudio Developers project without consent, is a matter which touches the LAD community.
I can imagine other developers wouldn't be happy if 'New-Ardour' would be 'officially released by linuxaudio.org'. And even if they won't care, others would for their software.
Moreover, if you ban a developer from LAD, it's LAD related isn't it? If you're banned it means people block certain developers from a resource to discuss these technical LAD matters.
The last message to the consortium is dated from 2018 and who guarantees me that the same persons aren't in charge there? I did choose for LAD, cause I think it's the best place to share my concerns and I still think it is.
I do understand that most developers don't want to stick their heads into this and that it might end just here: go find a better place to issue this. Fine. I mean, I've also better things to do, but I think I've to speak up when I see a community transfer into a place where people who don't have the same opinion as some close core members, are more and more censored and where people misuse their neutral community roles for their own 'agenda'.
