It is as much part of GNU as GnuTLS (not anymore hosted or having anything 
controlled by GNU) or LibreBoot in the late days.  It is managed separately 
and rms cannot appoint/disappoint anymore different responsibilities.  A 
blatant proof of such is the Gnome project regularly talking about and 
supporting terms such as “cloud” and “open source” (and what they refer to).
