This reminds me: for some time, there has been a mention in the
foundation board minutes about giving some public thanks to the lawyers
working on behalf of the foundation. Sometimes this was noted as going
in the newsletter, other times it was left more open.

Has anything been done about this? Legal work is not cheap, so if we are
on the receiving end of a significant donation of time like this,
whether or not the subject matter or result is particularly appealing to
everybody, I would like to seem some thanks given in a very public
location. If we just let it slide for month after month, then that
doesn't seem like we are being particularly appreciative.

(I know there is a small mention at the bottom of about who supplies our legal services. Is
that considered enough?)
