It's an interesting idea though -- setting up Open Source projects as
non-profit corps and selling companies on contributing coding time as
a tax deduction. I have no clue how easy it is to setup a non-
profit, but I gotta believe that if you had an open source minded
attorney something could be done easily/cheaply and hence be done for
more projects. If that was made as a central selling point, I gotta
believe that some companies would be more keen on giving person-time
(not to mention capital support) to OS projects.
