A good start would presumably be http://www.oss.sgi.com/cgi-bin/mailto .
At the very least, whoever's running that ought to know a manager who
can get into contact with the appropriate legal staff.

I'm pretty sure that the big organisations that're trying to support open
source are going to be eager to address our concerns -- and demonstrate
their involvement in the community -- although I'm also pretty sure
it's going to take a while and some effort to work out a way for them
to actually do that.
