OK, you misunderstood what I was saying. I was trying to say that the NFP,
as you point out, has many other more productive avenues for funding, so I
don't expect that the continuation of the Gentoo Store as a separate entity
will really limit the NFP finanically in any way.

Well, NFP definitely doesn't mean "no money."

To avoid getting sidetracked for another six months, I'm getting this NFP
set up first, and then the trustees will be addressing funding issues as a
team. I will write up a coop proposal to present to the board. Trying to do
everything at once has shown to be a poor model for making progress, so I'm
being very careful to avoid doing so now.
