thanks for your contributions to GnuPG and its FAQ!

(And I hope there will be more to come
as you wrote you'll be staying on this list.)

Slightly off topic explanation as I am with the FSFE:
The FSFE is an independent sister organisation with a separate
leadership, and the framework agreement FSFE has with FSF does not give a 
single person a special influcence or one of the organisations a special 
power over the other.  (You may still be critical of both organisations and 
their leaderships and the influence a person from FSF may have on what is
associated with the names, this is not the right list to discuss it. 
But you should be aware about the structural independence.)
