We're now seeing a small trend of new (to me) business type concerns
related to the operation of the Foundation.

Raising the topic area for consideration by a wider audience is
useful.  We don't right now have anything like a coherent picture
presented of what all the detractors feel is wrong.

Could you (plural; Alison, Kelly, anyone else interested) please
coordinate a bit off list and then post us all a combined concerns
report, with high level goal / management technique / structure
concerns and specific business or legal structure, operations, or
whatever tactical concerns?  If you don't all agree then just bundle
them all together, but I've been away from my desk for 7 hrs today and
don't have the bandwidth to engage separately to try and pull together
a coherent picture of all the concerns.

Thank you.
