I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.
For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.
It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.
It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.
This is awesome news! Maybe we'll see you on the FLOSS Foundations mailing list? It's a great place to share best practices among nonprofits in the space
@eloquence hello, Erik. Thanks for sharing about FLOSS Foundations. This is a news to me. I learned big thing today!
