6 As I understand it, the Foundation with its board of Trustees manages
7 the financial assets. It also holds the Gentoo trademarks and
8 copyrights (though it is not entirely clear what copyright e.g. of
9 the Gentoo repo remains with the Foundation nowadays).
11 Otherwise, the developer community is self-governing and handles all
12 aspects of the distro (except for the ones listed above) itself.
13 By our metastructure model defined in GLEP 39, it elects a Council to
14 decide on global issues, which includes being an appeals instance for
15 teams like ComRel and QA.
