Wouldn't it be better to define a real structure where your company and others 
may take part ?

For instance, kernel.org is run by a non-profit organisation, see: 
http://www.kernel.org/nonprofit.html

The fact is that, if we don't setup strong and clear definitions of who's in 
charge of what or don't define a common head for the community, what will 
happen if any of the involved company/hacker/.... decide to split and 
continue alone, or simply to shutdown one machine, or claim copyright, etc...

Again, I don't suspect any bad intention, but this is the only way to prevent 
them, isn't it ?
