According to the current charter the only limitation is that the association 
mut stay with the FS philosophy.  I personally think it is OK.


However, I fear the FSF/RMS just want to get the job site and leave alone the 
association part, splitting so the project.


We could follow working in the project, to be ready to go ourselves, and just 
heard what the FSF will say about the hosting.

Good to know.

I agree. Read above.

I agree.

I thought it was good the user data be hosted at the FSF, if it is possible.

Additionally, Antenore thought it would be necessary get a main 'actor' 
supporting the project to be able to success.  However I can ensure you that 
if the project gets job offers posted it will success.

Maybe gnuherds will get such offers posts via the FS companies which will 
contact . Note that will link to gnuherds 
as job site.
