Well, this is not an FSF sponsored list.  I never received any money or
other resources from the FSF.  Maybe others, but I doubnt that.  The
only exception may be that they paid me a flight and 3 nights in a
shared hotel room in Tokyo in '99 - I gave a talk at their fund raising

I think this is a good rule in general because I started GnuPG as a
replacement for its proprietary counterpart.  I am not as strict as the
Boston folks; so it is okay to speak about PGP etc. as long as it does
not feel like advertising.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
