Hmmmm... considering (some seconds later ;) the URL of the site, I feel
a bit puzzled by the domain, whichs seems to indicate that we
speak about FSF, not FFS...

Can some one explain why the FFS organisation has a FSF domain ? ...
won't there be any confusion ?

Or maybe FFS is more than an associate organisation, but instead the
local Chapter itself ? Or they run the soon-to-come chapter's web site ?
... so why not directly ?

Not such a big deal anyway, as long as FS spreads in autria too.
