But you're mixing up the idiom there.
The argument made by Eric Raymond against Richard Stallman was that the GNU
project was the cathedral.  That the code releases were freely available but
that intermediate code was only available to the select few developers.

Raymond argued for the Bazaar model where the development is done in public
view on the internet.  (

It seems strange to cheer on the GNU project by simultaneously deriding it.
