Setting aside the fact that none of the machines our project is
officially maintaining are located in the EU, and the fact that we
are not a business and have no customers, this argument is drifting
into absurd territory.

By extension your assertions would apply to our mailing lists, our
code review system, our source code repositories... sorry, but no. I
assume if the EU wants it can instead forbid EU citizens from
participating in this project? I think this is getting rapidly off
topic and should probably be moved to
legal-disc...@lists.openstack.org instead if you wish to continue
such a debate.
