That's a good idea, thank you!

Just to be precise: it's not AGNULA that is going to be formally
registered anywhere. What we (I, some past members of the former
AGNULA Consortium, other volunteers) are going to do is create a
separate entity which will have, amongst its "social goals", the
promotion of Free Software in the audio/video domain. Of course, the
AGNULA project will probably be one of the main beneficiaries of this
entity, at least in the start; but the idea is that we should be able
to fund and/or help any other group or person we deem valuable and
works with/for Free Software in the audio/video domain.
If AGNULA disappears and/or becomes clearly obsoleted with regards to
other (similar) projects, then we want this entity to be able to
continue its existence.
As per avoid duplication I'd agree - the main problem I see in this
moment is the different stance the Linuxaudio.org consortium and the
wannabe "agnulesque" entity seem to have with regards to Free vs
