Since GNU receives donations, its policies should be openly discussed.
Several people pointed out above that GNU and the FSF are distinct entities, though headed by the same person. GNU's help the project page mentions cash donations only to the FSF, not to GNU. Presumably some of the FSF money finds its way back to GNU, via funding developers or hardware. But it is time for the two organisations to be properly separated, and RMS should head the FSF only, leaving GNU to active developers.
