  Could you check with our lawyers what it is that we actually need to
do to protect the Gentoo® trademark?  One question is do we need to add
the ® mark to all of our ebuilds in our Copyright statement?  The other
(at least at the moment) is if there are things that we have to be
careful not to refer to as "Gentoo foo"?  Presumably Gentoo Linux,
Gentoo BSD, etcetera should be reasonable, but what about "the Gentoo
init/runscripts system"?

Also, where are we on the copyright issue?  Last I heard there was a
tentative document being put forward, and I suggested that we make it
available for comments from our devs, but I believe that it was not yet
ready for public scrutiny at that time.  Has anything changed there?

Dostrow, any results from sifting through the various Delaware holding
companies (or whatever those organizations are called that can act as an
in-state presence for a corporation)?

Am I currently holding things up where shifting our banking to BofA is
concerned?  If so, please let me know, and I'll do my best to get that

We just received our first $500 check, by the way.  I haven't sent it
off to Netbank yet, but I'll get that done shortly.

We're currently running with the "proposed bylaws", but they've never
been confirmed.  Do we want a general, foundation-wide vote on accepting
them?  If so, does anybody want to propose changes first?

Okay, that's my thoughts for the day.
