There is no such thing as "FTFE-legal".
I'm sorry; you're right; I inadvertently added an "E". I was thinking of
FTF-legal, which does exist: https://mail.fsfeurope.org/mailman/listinfo/ftf-legal

Indeed, I should have remembered there's no 'E', as I've submitted many
(declined) subscription requests there!

That was a function of sloppy and quick typing on my part
and should have really referred to it as the European
Legal Network (facilitated by FSFE)
No problem! As you see, I did something similar (above) myself!
It's problematic that there are a lot of very similar names here for
very different things. :)

Anyway, to my knowledge, neither the European Legal Network, nor ftf-legal
are affiliated with, nor endorsed by, the FSF.

I just want to clarify that because some of the publications made under
that group's auspices contradict some of FSF's positions on the GPL.

[ Full disclosure: in addition to my various other roles in Free Software,
I serve as a volunteer on the Board of Directors of the FSF:
