Re: [opensuse-foundation] legal form [software patents]

About the Ubuntu Foundation (the trust fund set up by Shuttleworth),
wikipedia doesn't say a lot - it is perhaps interesting to note that
there are at least two other Ubuntu Foundations:

http://www.ubuntu-foundation.ch/
http://saubuntu.co.za//

The Ubuntu Foundation is not a Foundation like the one we want to
create. To summarize things bluntly: at the moment, it's merely a bank
account with lots of money to make sure that the Ubuntu project can
survive for some time if Canonical/Mark decides to stop investing in the
Ubuntu project.

There's is no real/formal not-for-profit organization for Ubuntu (except
all the small ones for local groups).
