I don't think that will be simple to obtain support from them, they
have already problem with resources.

When I contacted Debian and Debian Italia for an alternative to GNU
biz, they forwarded me to the FSF Europe. The answer was at that time
:-) that they didn't have enough resources to support these project
(as several  others), even if Gnu biz was already there...

The best should be housing, in such situation we will manage our host...
But without a proper sponsor it's not applicable, too much expensive.

Done. I set the end of the Month as final date. Every Month I'll update it.

Absolutely yes. Never thought to lose our principles!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Don't misunderstand what I'm proposing, I'll be never agree to accept
any kind of sponsor!!!
No! I'm agree with you 100%, I just think that will be really hard to
have support from other project that they are already looking for new
additional sponsor.

BTW I remember you that Debian is sponsored for example by HP. And
it's just an example....
