That is what others have made it to be. It was never intended to be such by the person who created the foundation in the first place. Paying for those legal filings and attorney fees out of pocket! The only time any proper IRS filings was done for Gentoo.... I have showed in -project what it was supposed to be. https://archives.gentoo.org/gentoo-project/message/3ac5418dd061fc53f4b8d55a99773f4c Like FreeBSD Foundation, a real organization paying for development via grants and other things... https://www.freebsdfoundation.org/ https://www.freebsdfoundation.org/what-we-do/grants/ https://www.freebsdfoundation.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/2017-Q2-Profit-Loss.pdf Presently working on raising $1.25 Million USD for next year. Look at the donors on their home page. Intel, Netapp, Versign, Netflix even Microsoft... Gentoo is missing out big time! But it is the communities choice. If Gentoo is just a name and logo, that is pretty sad.... Limited vision.... -- William L. Thomson Jr.
