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.

kind regards

PS: As to signing NDAs. The e.V. would be a legal body and able to  
sign any contract not violating the mission statement.
