Right.  I think the only side consideration was that if there was an
ASF-level account, through their special program for 501(c)(3)
nonprofits, then that enables additional capabilities and
opportunities for exposure.  It would still be up to individual PMC's
to create/publish their videos, but we'd be able to avail ourselves of
the other special features.

But maybe it is not worth the trouble.   I just thought I'd mention
it, since I had not seen this Youtube non-profit membership thing
before.
