Thanks for your support. GCC has an FSF appointed steering committee

But given that GCC is so big they delegate responsibility to
maintainers for larger subsystems/packages, of which you are one.
I have created a special section on

GNU community members like yourself who have endorsed the GNU
Social Contract.

Further, RMS is a member of the GCC steering committee, and I believe has veto power (possibly only over non-technical decisions). So the likelihood of that /committee/ endorsing the Social Contract is low.

I do not know if other GNU projects have a similar oversight structure.
