Pretty accurate. No idea how many people are involved with them from a FS
perspective, but it's much more as a support thing than an advocacy thing,

Yeah. Sheflug had RMS over not long ago, and I think HURD is definitely one
of the up-and-coming things for this year. Heck, Dobbs had an article on it,
must be important ;)) I take your point with regards LUG support for a
FSFE/UK - I can't think of any reason, however small, that they might not
support such a structure :)
