I am sorry for the trouble with bookkeeping.  We had to change to a
full balancing system and that took longer than we expected.  We do
have the numbers up to 2004
( The 2005 numbers will
be posted as soon as available.

> 1. No support for FSF*'s non-free-software actions (FDL and so on)

Ah well, I don't think that we support the FDL with any action (or
well money) it it is related to software.  Given that the FDL is the
most widely used license for non-software (read "wikpedia"), there is
of course a need to discuss problems this license has created.

I think we all will be glad to see the FDL problems cleaned out.  At
least I eagerly wait to get rid of non-free in sources.list which I
unfortunately need to get hands on libc and automake docs.

I was not aware that we don't have such a statement.  Anyway, we don't
just produce bits of information but we actually implement data
protection.  This is pretty common given that we are registered in
Germany and German data protecion laws are very tight.
