I am a Richard Stallman supporter.  If we have any organization it should be through the FSF?
We are already using GPLv2.  GPLv3 would be problematic for us since we are involved in building and then it grays any software built with buildbot.  

I don't see any advantage to joining them.  Why should we?  

Would it not be better to aligning with Python since we are 100% Python?
