FSF-I is to be a not-for-profit company with certain goals which are not
mass movement oriented. This is not useful to the Free Software Movement
which is a mass movement.
Is FSF-I democratic in its constitution? Meaning, are the members elected or
do company policies apply?
If FSF-I continues in this manner then why do we need any FSF-I? We need an
organisation which can guide this Movement and not simply to give
verdict/blessings that "this/you is/are right", "that/you is/are wrong",...
We want to know how FSF-I intends to proceed in the future. Does it plan to
be a participant in the Movement? We want it to be democratic and
representative of the Movement in all senses and not simply through talk.

&lt;snip&gt;FSF India was not part of the conference though some board members participated<div class="Ih2E3d"><br>
in the event. Our participation is no way an endorsement to the conference.<br>
FSF India do have its own stand on the conference. Please note that<br>
this has nothing<br>
to do with what happened.<br></div></blockquote></div><br>Why is it that FSF-I has no public opinion about anything important? Chennai, Kochi, Bangalore...<br>We want to know the reason for FSF-I not being a part of the conference.<br>
