Are we talking about charging for apache?  I must have really misread something
if not then who are they going to write checks to instead of netscape? Noone.
If we accept money, yes we can get stuff... but what? That's all I'm 
asking.  Linux foundation got about $1000.00 I belive the 2nd year... they 
spend about $600.00 to get a card for someone to write a driver for it... 
I think the other $00.00 sat there for abother 6 month before they actually
took it and did a show in Mid-West somewhere... that's about it.  

My question is 'what do we need that requires money? That we either don't 
have, or can't get from else where.'
