Yeah, I don't really know if such a list exists, but nonetheless I think
that both the SF Conservancy and FSF should keep one.

Yeah, although I think that it has deep links with our behavior as a
society. Most people don't really see themself as political actors and
don't connect their actions with politics or how are influenced by them
(maybe the concept of hegemony?). Most of them rather want "to keep
politics out of software development", and do a mental stretch to deny
politization of the movement. I already saw people do this _while_ they
advocating for free software movement, which is crazy at least.
