Well, opting to join another group would be one way to go but
for the kinds of things I'd like the Koha Foundation to do it
probably wouldn't be ideal. For instance, it'd be neat if we
had a collaborative record-sharing system for Koha libraries
that they could subscribe too (nominal fee just to keep it going),
submit records to and use records from other libraries. That would
be much easier to set up with an organization that _we_ were
running so that _we_ could make purchase decisions, etc.
Also, I'd really like to go after some grant money -- at least
in the US, there are lots of non-profit grants available for
library projects that could really help us out in finding
resources for development projects. As it stands, the process
for getting a grant would be too difficult as we'd have to
go through a library or other non-profit to qualify ...
Just my two cents ... what do others thing about those ideas?
