"The Gentoo distribution is maturing rapidly. Since its birth in 1999
the distribution has evolved to one of the top Linux distributions
available today. The incorporated technologies including Portage, the
software management system, are frequently seen as major software
breakthroughs. 

In order to sustain the current quality and development swiftness the
Gentoo project needs a framework for intellectual property protection
and financial contributions while limiting the contributors' legal
exposure. The Gentoo Foundation will embody this framework without
intervening in the Gentoo development. This latter aspect should be seen
as a clear separation between coordinating the Gentoo development and
protecting Gentoo's assets. Both are distinct concepts requiring
different skills and working methods.

The Gentoo Foundation decouples necessary bureaucracy from development,
providing faster and higher quality results as the developer can now
focus his attention completely at the community and his responsibilities
(being software, documentation, infrastructure or others).
