I've sent two licence questions to the FSF licensing team;  one took
three months to get an answer on (and in fact resulted in the software
whose licence I was wondering about getting relicensed) and the other
took two months (and was "we can't provide a quick answer, read the
text of the licence" - this being the GFDL).

So, in my experience, suggesting people email licensing at is
equivalent to saying "go away and don't bother me for at least two
months." Which is unfortunate.

If you disagree, then I look forward to actual statistics.
