OpenBSD foundation announced

Good news from OpenBSD project. The OpenBSD Foundation is pleased to announce today it has completed its organization as a Canadian federal non-profit corporation and is ready for public interaction.

The OpenBSD Foundation is a Canadian not-for-profit corporation which exists to support OpenBSD and related projects such as OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, and OpenCVS. While the foundation works in close cooperation with the developers of these wonderful free software projects, it is a separate entity.

However this may turn down a few people:

We are not a registered charity, in the sense that we do not issue tax deductible receipts. The reporting overhead (accounting and legal costs) to operate a registered charity in Canada is prohibitive without a sizable revenue stream. Currently, this would divert a great deal of resources that could be better utilized in helping build good free software. We do issue receipts (not tax deductable) for all donations.

Nevertheless it is a good move in right direction.

    Meh. Not tax deductible means very few (any?) corporations will be willing to donate money. They would be better off hiring a local developer to do whatever work they need (and then can write the whole thing off as an expense). Why are these guys wasting their time?
