I think it's a pity that TDF isn't planning to work up a revenue stream like paid technical
support, in a Canonical style.
That model requires a for-profit entity sitting in the wings, handing
over money when needed.
would be interesting to know why, if someone wanted to take time out to explain... 0.2 cents.
A non-profit in the US is restricted in the amount, and type of revenue
that is generated, without incurring a tax penalty. Essentially, all
profit-generating activity has to be done at an arm's length. How long
that arm has to be, depends upon the activity, the type of non-profit,
and perhaps one or two other things.
The rules for non-profits in other countries are different. So much so
that what is legal there, might well not be legal in the united states,
and vice versus.
