I would like to see that.  I can't see how any organisation can hope
to build confidence without some progress reporting back to the
submitters.  Something short at the end of the case is needed.  A
3-line summary would be adequate (that's what the Information
Commission usually sends when I report privacy violations), but it
needs something.  It would also be an excellent time to request money.

The number of bounces from dead @fsfe.org addresses suggests that it
also needs some work to improve retention, so I'm not wholly confident
in encouraging people there.  Can someone post the retention rate?

Given recent stuff, I'll replace my request to add FSF to my
business's support with one to add FSFE, rather than remove it.

Related question: is AFFS forwarding FSFE donations at the mo?

What's needed to bring these to the UK?
