In reply to killermike:

The proposed organisation doesn't have a name as yet, although there are a number of ideas on the table from those who have helped me to develop the idea.

('Foundation' is already taken, although I'm not convinced that it should have been - my understanding is that it is normally reserved for use by charities and similar bodies, which ROL isn't.)

Anyhow, for now I'm using the word 'charity' because it has a specific legal meaning, and because it conveys better than any other word how the concept differs from any other RISC OS-oriented organisation that has existed before.
