Okay.  I have to ask.. WHY?

Why is this necessary or is deemed necessary?  More than half of us on
this team barely have the time to keep up with *buntu, let alone be
able to help run a LLC.

Teams should be autunomous, away from the main *buntu development,
within reason.  Forcing them down this road puts unneccessary stress
on some of the volunteers, especially those like me and Matt who are
already busy as hell.

That, and I do not understand why this is even remotely necessary.
Proxima Networks is filing for LLC to protect itself as well as my
self from any possible financial problems, and I do not see one reason
why the team should do this as most of our contributions are not
financial, let alone be able to make money off of it.
