OK. I've also been busy (reiserfs filesystem failure on my box, running the
store, family, etc.) Since neither of us have had a chance to file a
response, the pending trademark registrations will be cancelled by the

While this might seem like a big bummer, it is probably for the best. The
trademark registration was one of those remaining areas that I was still
handling on my own. That really isn't my job anymore. Now the Foundation can
restart the trademark registration process on behalf of the Gentoo
community, so it's not being handled by just one person.

Before that can happen, we will need to craft a legal document that will
transfer copyrights (graphics, code) from Gentoo Technologies, Inc. to the
Foundation, and allow me to use the Gentoo logos for the Store. This should
not be difficult or very time-consuming, and I'm hoping that the [Redacted]
people can help us with this. 

Do you think we could make the copyright transfer to the Foundation our
first priority for [Redacted], and attempt to get the copyright transfer in
effect before the end of the year? I think that the other things on your
legal to-do list are dependent on getting this copyright transfer in place
first, anyway.
