I'm comfortable with Debian signing the original letter, but as an
organizational statement, I think I like this one somewhat better. I
think an organization should try to express what that organization itself
is going to do, and this seems clearer on that point. (Personal
statements are a bit different.)
The EFF statement is also worth reviewing:
but I think Debian's relationship with the FSF is closer to that of FSFE
than the EFF, so their statement feels a bit more on point for us.
Thank you for raising this, Sruthi! I hadn't seen the FSFE's statement
before your message.
