It is a long thread.
Note that if you want to get involved 
helping the FSFs on topic you always find a way.

Much work is most effectively done among a small group of people
and then later discussed with a wide audience.  
With publishing the FLA now we enter the public discussion stage.

The problem addressed by the FLA itself
is known for long in the Free Software community and its existance
was analysed at many places. Also that the FSFE was thinking about the issue.
It was in last years talk by Georg at the LSM in Bordeaux for instance.
Anybody willing to help and approaching the FSFs was welcome.

Well, FoSDEM tries to focus on technical things,
they try to avoid getting involved too deeply into "political" issues.
This is why you don't here much about political happening
in the Free Software community around FoSDEM.
