Could I ask for some clarification?
Isn't Koha already licensed under the FSF? 
If it were to be decided to start a "Koha Foundation" or join an alternate
Foundation, how would this affect the license with FSF?
Is the copyright of Koha held by FSF?
Can Koha apply for grants under FSF? Receive donations? 
How well does FSF oversee the 4000 licenses currently listed in its
directory? Rules of entry and exit? What are the benefits to the Koha
developers or the Koha users community, to be licensed under the FSF?

And I also wonder how legitimate/important other librarians or library
managers view the FSF and Koha's association with the FSF? 
I will make some enquiries amongst my library contacts in Australia.

Thank you,
