If the aim is that the FSUK is a UK chapter of the FSF then fine - if not then 
I think some separation is warranted, or in the very least we should not be 
exclusively related to the FSF.

That should probably be revisited at some point, but its probably not 
necessary immediately.

Its not. The only issue I have with it, is that if the FSUK is not a UK 
chapter of the FSF then some independence and autonomy is required.  If 
nothing else its the look of the thing.  there has been some discussion on 
the list so I thought I would highlight it here again for consideration.

Not sure why I did that...

I guess what needs to be established fairly early on is the relationship that 
we intend to have with the FSF (I would have thought this is a matter of how 
close rather than anything else). Poll?
