Rest assured that the discussion has been lively there. I don't get all the fuss about this, though. So the Foundation is in trouble, so what? It's basically holding the Gentoo trademark in the USA (in Europe, it does *not*, another legal entity does here) and it is the copyright holder of the ebuilds. The ebuilds are licensed under the GPL v2 and if the original copyright holder ceases to exist, the rights to the creative work falls back to its original owners - the developers. Nothing lost. The ebuilds keep coming, we're basically doing "business" as usual and that should be enough, I'd say. -- Best regards, Wulf
