okay, then ... why not 'go all the way' and have it incubated to and
owned by the Apache Foundation? They certainly have the resources to
handle legal and other issues in the long term, and governing means to
KEEP this a community efforts for decades to come.


That's an interesting idea, pooling IP with a community foundation would definitely be good. An alternative would be to create the "FreeRDP Foundation" ourselves, as a non-profit organization for the FreeRDP community. Both are options we will look into.
