Does this have any effect on our negotiations with the FSF?

                   FSF Releases Fiduciary License Agreement

   [1]lisah writes "FSF Europe announced this week that it has released
   its [2]Fiduciary License Agreement (FLA), which is being touted as an
   'assignment of copyright.' The goal of the FLA is to allow free
   software projects to place their copyright under the control of a
   single group or trustee, though its usefulness is being debated
   throughout the open source community since it only address the
   authorship rights of a project, not the more intangible moral rights.
   Furthermore, the agreement seems to have been created without the
   involvement of a lot of lawyers and some members of the community
   worry that the FLA might have unintended consequences if adopted
   without sound legal advice." and Slashdot are both owned by OSTG.
