Do you understand that the many -isms that negatively impact GNOME and

disengaging OPW from GNOME.

If GNOME continued to be one of the participating organizations, but the
administration -- and only the administration -- was moved to a
different organization, would this negatively impact GNOME?

it would remove a source of income for GNOME — granted: we're not
making a massive profit out of it; we could (should?) increase the
administrative fee, if that allowed us to hire another part-time
assistant to handle the issue.

it would also dilute our position of leadership in outreach.

creating a foundation is not an easy task; people would have to show
up and handle the administrative load, as well as the financial one.
