Sounds good to me :-)

I think we'd need at least one major sponsor to cover the overheads of a
foundation. There are a whole bunch of big companies now shipping
millions of audio-critical products based on the Linux kernel, compared
to hardly any when we started.

So I'd suggest the first step would be to find someone prepared to reach
out to the likes of Google, TI or Toyota for support, preferably someone
used to dealing with corporates. Sponsorship opportunities for this
year's LAC would be a good, low commitment way for them to get involved.
