KDE eV is not an affiliate of the FSF but the FSFE. We are not
"fellows" in strict sense of the FSF then. It does not change the
meaning though, but accuracy is good.

When I said private I meant org-to-org instead of through open letters.

So I think we should say nothing (first sentence) and if we do (I hope
we do not), it should be Membership to Membership, that is
representative to representative, given the kind of topic (diversity
in representation/decision making forums) this is about.
