Thanks for your feedback. I have added a little bit of background to
<> that
hopefully clarifies the situation:

    The goal of the GNU Social Contract is to state the core values
    GNU maintainers who have endorsed it are committed to uphold. It
    is both an agreement among us, GNU contributors, and a pledge to
    the broader free software community.

    Additionally, we think it can be a first step towards formalizing
    a transparent and collective governance of the GNU Project.

    This initiative is not supported by Richard Stallman.
    Nevertheless, we consider it a legitimate action by and for GNU
    maintainers to collectively define the core values we believe GNU
    stands for.
