I'm just a user, but since this mailing list is called "users", and
for clairity:

>>Always has, hasn't it.  I look at that for hm a long time, and it
always was like that.

The FAQ ( claims the other
way round, namely:

>GnuPG is free cryptographic software from the GNU Project which helps people ensure the confidentiality, integrity and assurance of their data. Let’s try that again: GnuPG is…
>GNU Project. The GNU Project is a group that aims to give people the ability to do all their computing with free software.

So I, as a user, was completely sure that GnuPG _is_ (or, at least,
was) an official GNU Project.

Regarding the Stallman story, the community seems to be split roughly
by a third, with one third of activists having signed an open letter
with criticism, and two thirds considering the criticism unjustified
(and having signed the support letter).
