I looked into this with every intent of setting up the Ardour Foundation
last year. The irony is that Ardour has been *too* financially
successful to make this trivial to do. There is enough cash flowing
around that Directors&Officers Insurance would almost certainly be
required to "immunize" the board and officers against lawsuits over how
money was spent. This makes things quite a bit more complicated than I
was willing to face last year. It can also act as disincentive for
people who might otherwise serve on the board.
