|If GNU wants to be considered for heavy-lifting, mission-critical projects, they need capable, dedicated eyes on the critical code. TLS can't be someone's hobby.
As it stands right now, I can't even go to the GNU TLS website to find out if/when the code was last audited. Netcraft reports empty HTTP responses. Does anyone know what's going on?

These "disputes" and "major disagreement" may very well be related to the GNU Project's (over-)involvement in GnuTLS's development. In other words, GNU did/do have dedicated eyes on critical code and GnuTLS's developers didn't like that.
