Hi Charles,

Thank you very much for the further explanation. I think that cleared
some misunderstandings on my end.

I'm puzzled with this too.  What is meant by "engagement of the user
with developers"?

Like Bastien, I think that endorsement of any organisation shouldn't
be necessary. To my knowledge, FSFE does not endorse any particular
Free Software project for numerous reasons (e.g. where to draw the
line what's worth endorsing?).
