Oh, let's not do that.  I wouldn't say I have been tricked; I have had a
different expectation of the FSF than it turned out was true.  Call it
being tricked, but then it wasn't you or the developer team who did that.  

I'm glad that AUCTeX has a good manual, and I'm particularly happy if I
somehow contributed to that.  When I signed the papers, I knew that I
gave the work (in part) out of my hands, so be it.  I won't further
contribute anything ATM, but it's a totally worthless effort to sort out
what I have done once upon a time and back that out.  I'd rather do
something that improves AUCTeX.
