I'm not sure I understand your reference, but those are clearly generic
issues relating to management of FSF projects overall and to philosophical
issues related to Free Software.  That's very clearly the prerogative of
the FSF.  What I heard claimed was that there was interference in the
*technical* issues, such as when to take branches or similar specific
technical choices.  I've heard of no such examples before this one.
