Hi all,

Recent press has regarded SPI as a 'parent organisation' of GNOME, however
the relationship doesn't seem clear to me.

The SPI web page <http://www.spi-inc.org/projects/> lists GNOME as a
'project which SPI has chosen to support' and 'an umbrella organization for
projects from the community'. It lists "GNOME Project Leader -- Miguel de
Icaza <leader(at)gnome(dot)org>" no its Advisors list.

However the GNOME Foundation web page does not list SPI as a member of the
advisory board <http://foundation.gnome.org/advisory_board.html>, though
Debian, which is definitely helped along by SPI, is listed. It's not
mentioned on the Foundation website.

Just wondering if there's any continuning cooperation between the
organisations, and whether this information should be updated.
