I hardly think this is needed. Anything Gentoo distributes on his master
server and is mirrored is still distributed by Gentoo Foundation. The
trustees don't really need to be involved as the Gentoo developer that
actually does the work and development does this as a volunteer for the
Gentoo Foundation.
