I feel that was a backwards step because "FSF" and "FSF Europe"
reinforced each others names and some technical audiences already knew
FSF.  FSFE is just another non-intuitive ETLA which has to be expanded
more often.

But if you go ahead with as a primary, please keep the
List-Id values the same on the mailing lists.  I think that might
require fixing an old bug in Mailman, to make List-Id configurable and
independent of the email domain, but it would be good to fix that at

Hope that informs,
