Then, yes, I think it would be good to write a statement from the
Assembly, that we tried to work with the FSF, and would love to make
things work, but that the current situation makes this unworkable.
Note that this does mean we will have to find a solution for those GNU
projects (like the GNU toolchain and GNU Guix) currently using the FSF
Working together fund to start using a different financial setup. This
will be somewhat painful. But associating with a different foundation
(or start our own) can also be seen as a fresh start.
I am still hopeful that the FSF will take drastic action to restore its
standing, so that remaining with them will be an option. If not, there is
probably an obvious choice for a different umbrella organisation...
Starting a foundation is, I think, an enormous amount of work, and probably
also a bit redundant given the number of important advocay organisations
for free software around the world.
