In this case, the original literal meaning isn't as appropriate as the
modern figurative meaning.

https://www.google.com/search?q=define+stakeholder

"2. A person with an interest or concern in something, especially a
    business."

In our case, "stakeholders" are all the people who have committed time
and/or resources to helping the GNU project, who have invested of
themselves to make it succeed, and thus have an interest in seeing their
work continue to thrive.

(Amusingly, the (1) definition from above refers to gambling wagers, not
real estate.  Times change.)
