This is included in the announcement:

"A not-for-profit organization will be set up in the coming days"
says that the initial founding is not finished yet.

"We will discuss and lay down details in the coming days."
This says that the initial structure including some guides will be
discussed and announced soon.

I feel a bit like Michael, although I do not have a similar job in
this whole system I tried to read all mails - yesterday and today I
spent some hours on that, leaving IRC Saturday night with my head
spinning. Of course may be that "I'm too old for this sh**" :)

As for the domains registering, this is a bit different because there
are nasty and greedy folks out there who will try to get their paws on
such new names only to sell them later. Registering such things like
mageia.<country-tld> may be a good thing - I did that for mageia.de
but of course I am ready to give it to the organisation if needed.
