As the person who wrote that letter, I cannot help but feel somewhat 
disappointed by this reaction.

However, I know that W3F has always been seen as conflictive. There is a 
point to W3F, and there is a place and time to make that point. The call 
for venues for FOSS4G 2019 is not that place.

I will work with the SLOC to provide an alternate letter. I'll also 
understand if the SLOC wants to withdraw my support from their proposal.
