Subject YouTube Nonprofit Program

It appears that we have an ASF "channel" on YouTube:
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheApacheFoundation

I see that there is also a YouTube Nonprofit Program, that brings some
extra perks beyond a normal account: http://www.youtube.com/nonprofits

Does anyone know, is our channel currently part of that nonprofit program?

If we are part of that program (or are interesting in joining it) then
there is this interesting note:

"We only allow one membership per organization. However, branches of
umbrella organizations that share Employee Identification Numbers
(EINs) with their parent organizations are eligible for individual
memberships. Branches must indicate that they are applying as a
"related organization" during the application process and go through
additional screening."

This might be an avenue for having project-specific accounts as well,
which might be interesting for projects like Apache OpenOffice, which
have already produced a number of Youtube videos, but all scattered
among individual user accounts.

Anyone else interested in this?  Is this worth pursuing?  Who controls
the current ASF YouTube account?

Regards,

-Rob
