Robin, I believe that the Articles of Incorporation were written by drobbins lawyer. From reading up about these things (as a non USAsian, I've needed to do that) I understand its normal practice to write the purpose as widely and vaguely as possible so that as times change and the focus of the NPO shifts, as it may, the articles do not need to be changed. - -- Regards, Roy Bamford (NeddySeagoon) a member of gentoo-ops forum-mods treecleaners trustees -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAki+z8MACgkQTE4/y7nJvav5YACg8QeBFqC9sRJ7/VdAmBtu2FLj ZqoAn1GrstmPm0ZI6lyEGODbOX/qsgVc =HZLa -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
