I'm sure this is one of the questions that can be posed _after_ getting the NFP up and running? It's not like we are dealing with something new here. Pay-pal donations have been part of Gentoo's income for a long time now - why would it now be suddenly necessary to bind the answer of this question to the creation of the NFP? Let's not start posing all questions at once and let's wait until the first milestones are set :) I'm sure all further questions can be discussed afterwards. I know I'm being a bit protective here, but I have suffered from burn-outs before and I know what actions can lead to a new one; since then I'm very calm about these things :) Wkr, Sven Vermeulen -- ^__^ And Larry saw that it was Good.
