The team at fsfeurope.org address reaches the core team directly.
The two mailinglists discussion at fsfeurope.org and
fsfe-de at fsfeurope.org also are good places to get in contact with
all or the German speaking FSFE people.

From what I know about PingoS, the project focusses on
some of the practial advantages of GNU/Linux and Free Software.
It is stressed several times that "Linux" comes without costs.
Personally I feel that the project should gently also introduced to
the mid-term and long-term advantages gained through Free Software.
Maybe we can meet and chat about how we can help each others.
I think Georg Greve will be in Berlin for the WOS2 and the FSFE
will have a small booth at the Systems in Munich from 15-19. Oktober.
These might be good occasions.
Note that I am not necessarily lead the education efforts of the FSFE.
