exactly. Maybe two things to add (and Martin, feel free to correct me):

TeamOOo: donations are not tax-deductible, as not approved as 
not-for-profit, but thus more flexible in handling money spending 
outside of Germany.

FrODeV: donations are tax-deductible, we are approved as not-for-profit 
and as especially meritorius ("besonders förderungswürdig"), but thus a 
bit more limited in spending outside of Germany.

NB: every association can decide if they want to run for it or not, so 
it is *not* a governmental judgement.
