Help save Open Tech Fund, a major free software and privacy funder!

There is some crazy internal US politics right now where a couple proprietary software companies (Ultrasurf and others) are trying to take over the free software Open Tech Fund money. There is a campaign to try to stop it: https://saveinternetfreedom.tech

I think F-Droid should be an official signer since a) this is about free software, b) key F-Droid developments have been funded by Open Tech Fund.

Plus LetsEncrypt/CertBot, Tor, NoScript, TLS ESNI/ECH, DNS Privacy, Reproducible Builds, Wireguard, DeltaChat, OpenKeychain, pypi.org, Guardian Project, Signal, etc etc. https://www.opentech.fund/results/supported-projects/
