Dear ladies and gentlemen,

I don´t know exactly if you are the right one to ask my questions, but I
hope you coudl try to help me.
I´m an austrian student and I live in Graz.
Some colleagues and me have to write a paper about the FSF concerning
it´s organisation structures, projects etc.
Now some questions appeared which I cannot answer without some
explanations of you.

How is the organisation structure of Debian?

Is it somehow related to the FSF?

Who founded it?

Is ´Debian  personally, financially or organizationally related to the FSF or
other projects?

It would be very helpful for me if you could find the time to answer
thes questions.

Have a nice day and also weekend.
I thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Natascha Neukam

Dear Natascha,

the current organisational structure is as follows:
