Daniel,

If you research the time line you will find posts on -nfp that indicate 
that the foundation problem was being raised within Gentoo before 
drobbins infamous blog post. 

As some/all of the assets that were supposed to transfer to the 
foundation were still owned by drobbins, its likely (this is 
speculation on my part) that someone was talking to him about 
completing the transfer. It follows that he knew what was going on with 
respect to resolving the gentoo foundation issue *before* he made his 
blog post.

That backs up what Steve Long is saying.

Incidently, the Foundation is a peculiarly USA legal device. So its 
important in the USA only. Its existence (or not) only changes the way 
Gentoos assets are owned. It does not affect the way the technical part 
of Gentoo operates. Indeed, as a part of his leaving Gentoo, drobbins 
set up the council and foundation as separate bodies. Its a bit of a 
mystery why he needs control of both bodies to resolve what is purely a 
foundation issue.
