Since many members of this list seem unaware of it, Bourbaki is dead since
June 1968, when a notice was posted at the Institut Henri Poincare (Paris)

I remember no more the signatories but among them was AFAIK Jacques
Roubaud, a poet and mathematician member of OULIPO (Ouvroir de litterature
potentielle), a close friend of the well-known Category-theorist Jean
