Yes, but some of those are harder to answer. I've written up a draft
transfer doc that, if approved by both parties, would certainly solve
the first two issues. Legal counsel will certainly need to get
involved, and unfortunately that's something that trustees (both the
current ones and the soon-to-be-elected ones) are not
allowed to talk about, since doing so could break privilege.
What exactly is "the store situation" that needs to be fixed? The
agreement between the Gentoo Foundation and Daniel Robbins was that the
store would be run by Daniel Robbins for some set period of time
(currently proposed as one year from the date of the copyright
transfer), in exchange for the copyright transfer.. After that time
running of the store reverts to the Foundation, but what happens at that
point has not yet been decided.
