Um, probably http://foundation.gentoo.org and
http://archives.gentoo.org/ml/gentoo-trustees/ would be the best 
sources of info.

Here's some things that the new trustees are probably going to have to
deal with:

  * Taxes for the Foundation's first year
  * Other paperwork involving NM's corporation laws
  * Possibly relocating the Foundation if we cannot satisfy the NM
    residency requirement.
  * Deciding on whether we want a copyright transfer agreement for devs
  * After the copyright transfer, if it ever happens, enforcement of 
    Gentoo IP violations.
  * Voting on and enacting bylaws
  * IRS filing
  * Finding a new bank that can handle an account with access by US and
    non-US citizens, while still being PayPal-friendly.
  * Other things that I'm missing.  Other current trustees feel free to
    add items!
