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.
