thanks for you answer. The only/main question I have is regarding
money. Do you pay special care regarding the financial authorities?
E.g. in free countries like Germany and Netherlands the financial
authorities will scan your account regulary. And I don't want some
one to get personal issues with their financial authorities due
holding the money.
Also you can't handle tax exemption but this seems to be not needed
in the NSLu2 case.
PS: As to signing NDAs. The e.V. would be a legal body and able to
sign any contract not violating the mission statement.
