My take is that just because an orgainzation needs and spends money
this does not make it a 'business' aka a for-profit business.
A 'business' sole purpose is to put money in the pocket of the owners
and to promote a brand. That is not the intent.
even the red cross aka a non-profit organization has to pay light bills
and pay people to fix the roof. As much as 25% of a groups expenses are
used for paying employees. And they need to use 'donations' for this as
well as to do the 'good things'.
As long as a groups money is not soley put in the leaderships pocket and
that the money goes to keeping the organization going and used for its
intent (speading the word on linux and creating leadership), all is ok.
As to how much to pay... that is tricky
So if Lynxs has to pay for teacher, that in turn, promote the group and
spread the word, "Its a good thing"
