The thing is, that we've got to make sure in the future, that questions
about funding and so can be answered with the code of conduct.
In order to be effective, we can not accept money where strings are
attached, because we've got to make sure that we stay independent.
Especially with my back ground I'd know some folks to ask for funding,
but then the independence and trustworthyness of the project would
be put into question. Also patents are a no-no.
Also we should underline in the COD that the LibreSilicon label must
not be used by people to get involved in political activism, and it doesn't
matter how well ment it is.
