Here is a more pertinent link:
It requires submitting a business plan according to the FAQ. This sounds
like a traditional venture capital arrangement instead of just charity.
I'm not sure if they would invest in open-source projects like OpenAFS.
Ok, this is confusing, a couple of articles say that free projects don't
