It's a slightly unusual use of the term 'charity'. Surely referring to it as a 'foundation' or 'initiative' would be more conventional?

The intentions behind the charter are reasonable and I realize that nothing is set in stone at this point but I hope that the organizers make an effort to look around the net for existing resources. One of the best lessons of FOSS is that collaboration and reuse of facilities is usually better than creating from scratch. I wonder what facilities are out there on the web that could be reused?

For example, riscos.info has started a list of projects that need help and perhaps that could be expanded?


There are probably a few RO resources of this sort that could be tidied up, improved and united under a common banner.

Perhaps some of the mainstays of open source development (such as Sourceforge and bugzilla) could be utilized in some way?
