Which is quite clear form the constitution of the legal association: no one.

You have been pointed at this several times.
It does not help us, our staff or volunteers to raise that question again and 
again. It keeps us away from making progress for Free Software.

I think there is a missconception here:
The legal association as been founded to be a support pillar for the 
activities of the FSFE, not for being representative of a certain group, 
because it is not easy to define who this group should be. It certainly is an 
honor to be in the legal association, but you are expected to do a lot of 
work and for practical reasons it only makes sense to accept people that are 
showing the ability, the personal integrity and willingness to do the work.

(To be extra clear: This is my personal opinion.)
