Andrei, This is splendid news for the purveying of the D Programming language. The question is though: this covers the USA what about the Rest of the World?
For the language itself it is almost irrelevant where the owning foundation is located as long as it is a charitable venture in its jusridiction of incorporation. However for financial issues, the jurisdiction is critical. Getting USA-wide charitable status is great, well-done on that, particularly in the context of the atitude of IRS to charitable foundations a couple of years ago. However the EU and other parts of the world will not be covered by this, and I am not sure there is any form of reciprocal arrangement.
