Dear all,
  Drobbins popped into irc to talk to me about where the transfer stuff 
currently resides.  I told him that our lawyers are still reviewing it.
He's in a hurry to get things wrapped up (I believe that he's starting a
new job soon), and he had a proposal:

The trustees send drobbins an e-mail promising that his
drobbins@g.o mail forward will be maintained as long as drobbins

Drobbins' lawyer will file the trademark and copyright paperwork with
the Fed by the end of the week that they are now owned by the Foundation. 
A copy of the paperwork will be sent to the Foundation Secretary.

Drobbins will change his account so that the address and
contact info for the domains are the Foundation (and provide
us w/ the account name and password).  It would then just be up to us to
keep paid.

Drobbins feels that this should handle the vast majority of the issues,
but he's open to discuss any remaining issues in the future.

Here's my view on all of this.  We should promise drobbins his
maintained e-mail forward regardless.  Gentoo owes it to him, and if he
had wanted he could have required that we change the name when the
foundation was established.  I'm quite grateful that he didn't do that.

As for transferring the IP, drobbins owns it, so he certainly doesn't
need our permission to give it to us.  He can do that regardless of what
we say.  It will be good to ask our legal folks to check that he (and
his lawyer) have done so properly, of course.

Okay, feel free to flame me to a crisp now.
