Let me take this moment to also point out a very important fact wrt to the above comment and the SPI. If we say handed things over to the SPI. We would have a single point of contact to the SPI. Not more than one. So if one or two people on a bank account is an issue. Think about the issues of one person being our liason/contact to the SPI. Lots of fun if they are MIA :) Granted there are ways we could participate in the SPI membership and otherwise. But there is still the issue of having only one contact with them. They will not answer to a board of trustees per say. -- William L. Thomson Jr. amd64/Java/Trustees Gentoo Foundation
