Linux Foundation: This is a new “service” offering by the Linux
Foundation, called “Collaborative Projects” which
is different to classic (and probably all existing) Linux Foundation
projects. We actually might be the first
such project (not sure there, but it’s new as of January). We wanted
to avoid having essential resources (domain name,
trademarks etc) be owned by a single entity and the Linux Foundation is
working as a trustee. So in case of some
dispute in the far future, they would be the arbiter.
There is no financial commitment involved with giving the name. These
Linux Foundation “Collaborative Projects”
do not include fixed costs. There is some overhead cost if we are going
to use some services from them, but at this
time, there is no plan or need for any of this.
Having the name on the launch mainly shows some support of the project
and obviously helps FRR to be recognized.
There is no need to sign any (legal or otherwise) agreement either to
give the name.
If there are more questions, then just let me know.
