There is going to be clear  track of what money address@hidden earnt for
itself and what money  was funded by FSF. So even if  this is going to
happen we can show accounts and  take back whatever funds that we have
brought in. This is not a problem at all, IMO.

Can you please elaborate on this?

I donot think so. Infact FSFI never says that you _should_ call the OS
as GNU/Linux. It only says that you  do a favour to them by calling it

a very  valid question. more than  merely the ability to  work on free
software should  be the encouragement that individuals  get by working
on it.  Maybe someday  when address@hidden  goes big it  may be  able to
afford one or two technical writers.
