Making a summary of everything...

I think that if you consider this is a good strategy, why don't you
build a company that sells GNU services? You could even advertize that
you donate 90% of invoices to the GNU project.

It is very hard to have other people implement our ideas. It is better
to ask others which of those ideas they would support and go ahead and
start with building them.

I hope this helps.
