The "Umbrella group" is a diverse set of people who meet at events to discuss Umbrella organizations: Such shell organisations empower individual projects and participants by allowing them to group together in order to apply for larger grants as a group (preventing impedence mismatch with large grant awarding orgs), have shared services like accounting, contract management, but also services like VPNs, SIP, email servers, all in order to reduce the effort for its members to get their important work done.

Potential topics are: Creation of a Free Software umbrella org, general processes of umbrella orgs, tools and infrastructure useful to umbrella orgs, incubation and mentoring of projects, etc.

You are very welcome to join!
