Bart already wrote a shorter piece of text to use as a mission
statement. We should use that. Please make sure to keep everyone in
the loop and let us know exactly what you are going to file before you
do so.

Also, I have some vague recollection that we'll need an initial board
of some sort to incorporate the Foundation. Is that still the case?
