Hi Ico,

> I would really like to see the idea of foundation happen in the next 6

It would certainly increase credibility.

> Of course, there are other pressing matters and this is where I am hoping

Try the Software Freedom Law Centre. Not part of FSF as I understand it,
but run by Eben Moglen who is also counsel to the FSF.

> I would like to propose that in the next couple weeks/months we elect couple

Sounds good to me - unfortunately I am rather overcomitted at the
moment, otherwise I'd volunteer to help out there.

> Concerning the logo proposal, please pardon my ignorance, but when I was

I don't know how official it is, but I always used the one that adorns
the top of the homepage...

> Daniel, I was

OK - will do.

> personally am also

You'll never please everyone on that issue! I did agree with the FSF
campaign 'we speak about Free Software', although I've been using the
term 'libre software' because I think freedom comes at a cost, and if
developers want to ask for money to help them write libre software I
don't have a problem with that. Even RMS sold Emacs in the days before
he was a celebrity.

> this is definitely

Consensus isn't always possible - that's why we have a Chair on the
management board with a casting vote...
