After months of planning and hard work, members of the organizing group are pleased to announce the Plone Foundation.
This is a foundation that will benefit our community in many ways:
- Marketing and evangelization of Plone
- Development support
- Legal support
The Plone Foundation is modeled after similar successful ventures in the Open Source world, such as the Apache Software Foundation. It will own the copyrights and trademarks for Plone, and its mission is to **Protect and Promote Plone**.
The Plone Team is delighted to see this organization being established, and we encourage you to find out more about the Foundation, and how it will help you as a Plone user/developer, and how you can support the Foundation.
**Additional news**: the Foundation is pleased to announce our initial corporate partner, "Computer Associates":http://www.ca.com.
