If Heather had no concerns about the foundation signing such agreements
then I imagine it should be fine.  Barring other concerns I imagine it
should be no problem for the board to approve this agreement.

Depending on decisions we might make with regard to who is an officer,
it should be practical for the GeoTools chair/liason or the ED to sign
the agreements on behalf of the foundation.
