This particular problem we'll also have with DC15 and it's important
that we keep in mind that trusted organisations are supposed to be
trusted to do the right thing in the interest of Debian, but within
the bounds of the local jurisdiction, not because they are really
just subsidiaries under the control of Debian. Such would not work
under most jurisdictions I assume. The German authorities won't
grant non-profit status to an association under the control of
"Debian", which cannot even be clearly defined in legally acceptable
terms in most countries, I'd say.
