Simple and perhaps stupid (as I am not a lawyer neither a tax advisor) 
-  Is there anybody within FSFE who could be supported to work on octave? 
- Could FSFE use the donation to hire someone as a person to directly fulfil 
its task (i.e. promote open software as e.g. octave) and avoid forwarding money 
to a non-approved organisation by that?

Perhaps it is not possible to support "octave" as an organisation within the 
US, but to support some European octave developers directly?
