Thanks for digging it up; that email was in a side tangent of a mostly
unrelated thread (and without OpenWRT in the subject line) more than a year ago
when their intentions to join were much much less firm than in recent months,
and with no specific legal issues identified as needing to be resolved. As it
turned out, when they sent their application to the board, they just requested
services that we already provide very commonly, such as donation receipt and
being part of a non-profit. So consulting lawyers wasn't necessary.
