What is Linux Fund? by Randal L. Schwartz and David Mandel

A discussion of the administrative side of running an Open Source organization - legal standing, non-profit status, taxes and fees, accepting donations, international issues, etc.

We will also discuss ways Open Source "Foundations"like Linux Fund, Apache Software Foundation, The Software Conservancy, The Free Software Foundation, The Open Source Geospatial Foundation, and others are helping particular projects minimize the overhead of running their own non-profit.

A lot of the discussion will center on Linux Fund since both presenters are from Linux Fund and ways to become involved with Linux Fund.
