Whether a chapter, the foundation or an officer for obtaining open content
material (I do like that idea) writes it doesn't matter yes. As long as it
looks official to the persons/companies receiving. But I also wouldn't mind
if the foundation itself did it, considering the (possibly legal) mess of
fair use images on en.wikipedia. Which is where this whole idea originated.
