[tdf-discuss] [Legalese] "Foundation" or "Group"?
I'm a supporter and contributor of the OpenOffice.org Project since the
very beginning (Yeah, I was there in 2000 :-)
I'm trying to have a full picture about what is happening.
Is "The Document Foundation" a *real* Foundation, incorporated and
registered in a specific country and governed by a specific law or is it
still a international "group of people/different legal entities" without
any legal unity?
If the former is true, is there a Chart of the Foundation that explains
duties/rights/organization/statutory purposes and so on?
If it isn't true, is the present group preparing such Chart and will it
file documents for registration in any country?
I've seen much confusion about money contributions and the relationship
between this "Foundation" and the German OpenOffice.org Deutschland e.V
entity that, AFAIK, is a different legal entity.
Sincerely, I really miss a big chunk of info about what *exactly*
is/will be "The Document Foundation".
Any clarification will be highly appreciated.
