As I see it, contributing to Guix doesn't make you a part of GNU or FSF.

I think the same!

I don't understand how these concerns relate to Guix.  I look at Guix as
at a software project, and I simply don't participate in the general
GNU/FSF discussions that raises in guix-devel list sometimes.

I don't really understand it, but I respect your decision.  You are free
to do what seems appropriate to you.  Thanks!
