I think the above sentence is little misleading. First Part is OK.
But I believe Democracy exists within its board.
The process to select board does not need to be democratic completely.
for eg: GPLv3 drafting will be failure if it was decided completely
by users participating in drafting process. There was commitee ( not
democratically elected ) to analyse and take the needed .
But Democracy within the board is very important. It may be true that
FSF India is not working on electoral / Representational democracy.
That is Ok. But Democratic decision making in the board is important
to make it as a democratic structure
