Re: GNOME Store

FYI to all. Hackerthreads currently sells some GNOME merchandising and shares the revenue with us.

We are discussing opening our own store (using Zazzle) over which we'd have more control over products, design, etc. The board just wants to make sure that nothing in the agreement we currently have with hackerthreads prevents that. (And it looks like we are ok, but I'm having our attorney give it a quick read.)

I do think we should work to keep a good relationship with hackerthreads so we should let them know our plans (I can do that) and we should  try to avoid unnecessarily competing with their products.

I checked and we're one vote shy. There was positive reaction but it
stalled on knowing exactly what we've agreed to with hackerthreads. We
don't seem to have a copy of the agreement on file.

I think whatever we do, we'll need to make sure to work with
hackerthreads to maintain that relationship.

A couple of notes on hackerthreads from Rosanna:
- we get $4 per item sold
- they were the ones who came up with the decals, polo, and hat ideas
- in one quarter, they were happy with how things sold and gave us an
extra $100 in donation
