a possible local model.

In spain, we have a branch of the Free Software Foundation. The
branch is actually unnoficial in the sense it have not legal status.
Despite of this, we are working hard to offer the FSF services
in a local-useful manner (in spanish, for example :). In fact,
the branch work is to be a front-end to the FSF.
Our relation with the Free Software Foundation is good and the
communication is constant.
You can see our web page: http://fsf.eui.upm.es
(The FSF will put the domain name www.es.gnu.org and www.es.fsf.org
A FSF Europe would be a very good think, and perhaps in the
future our branch will be able to switch to this.
Perhaps a good local model would be to set up local FSF branchs,
as in Spain, and then (in a bottom-up manner) make the
legal infrastructure to make an european organization, that
would group the branchs. I it is better than the reverse model (first make
the global organization and then the branchs).
