It was discussed at recent meeting yesterday. We have contacted the
council, and will be seeing what we can do to help out, and/or lift some
or all of the non-technical burdens from the council.

Along with some other possible restructuring, so the foundation,
resembles other business entities. Essentially council = CTO. But this
still needs to be discussed with current/new council, and is not likely
to change anything in the next month or two. Potentially requiring a
global vote from all devs in the process.

Really hard to comment on it at this time. Things are still VERY
premature, and we are working on getting the ball rolling. When there is
more to say on this subject. The board of trustees, council, and/or PR
will put out a statement to that effect. Please be patient, we are aware
of the problems, and looking into what we can do.

FYI, we have no intentions of doing anything in private. That said we
are feeling things out in private, to see if there is any interest.
Before we take matters public. Which either way, they will be made
public ASAP.
