As I read the requirements from here

Article Four: A New Mexico corporation must continually maintain a
registered agent and registered office address.
(2) Enter the name of the registered agent, who must be located at the
registered office address.

We don't need offices per say, as a registered office address. Which the
registered agents address must be the same. Any registered agent we
retain, will therefore be the registered office location for the Gentoo

The By Laws could be implying that, but do not clearly state that. So we
should likely update them. To reflect that the Gentoo Foundation does
not have official offices, just a registered address to meet legal
requirements. No implication of Gentoo officials meeting at the offices
or conducting any business at that location or others.

Also maybe that the address might change as we change registered agents.
But any legal filings will have to be updated to reflect that. So not
sure the by laws need to spell out that aspect.
