Hi Fred,

My original aim was to eventually move beyond advocacy alone to
include co-development projects and the like. Of course, that's up to
the members.

I wasn't aware of that - I hadn't heard of that usage in the UK. What
you're describing would be called a 'partnership' here.

I've just found this feature on Google:

http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=define:Consortium

I like the definition from biology:

'Two or more members of a natural assemblage in which each organism
benefits from the other. The group may collectively carryout some
process that no single member can accomplish on its own.'

Lawyers, eh?

It is the case that we've already announced linuxaudio.org as a
consortium. However, once the management board is in place -
hopefully next week - they could discuss this issue. We certainly
don't want to put anyone off from joining.

I suggest that you approach your people in the meantime and test their
reactions to the idea, explaining that your company will not be
expected to sign any contract.

Personally, I think goodwill, trust and peer pressure are far more
powerful than contracts. I suppose that when you sign a contract,
you've already acknowledged that trust has failed to be established!

Cheers

Daniel
