Does GNU have a responsibility to educate GPL-licensed projects?

Author: JT Smith

rmorrell on Advogato discusses the role of the FSF in educating projects about the GPL: "I run and fund the SmoothWall firewall project here in the UK and across the globe in all the countries where it's installed (107 countries in 14 languages). While we strive totally to make sure that we push and promote the GPL everywhere where possible and make our downloads free, complete with GPL compliant source - sometimes it sucks that it isn't clear how the key core management of FSF don't make themselves more available to help GPL projects remain clued up as to the direction of proceeding towards commerciality without screwing up a vital message."
