No they are not active members of the community, and no, they are not
involved in the effort to set up a foundation."

They have of course registered a non-profit company called 'Koha Software
Foundation'.  Unless they agree to hand that over to a foundation formed by
the community, then:
- a community formed foundation will not be able to use that name;
- using a similar name could be subject to challenge by Liblime, at least in
the US; and
- if 'Koha Software Foundation' becomes active in the future, then there
will be two Koha projects competing, for example, for grant funding.

A better outcome would be for Liblime to rejoin discussions about formation
of a foundation.
