Setting up a 501(c)(3) foundation is a morass of paperwork.  If people 
within the US are interested in writing tax deductible cheques, a far 
less onerous thing to do would be to look at the Software Freedom 
Conservancy (http://conservancy.softwarefreedom.org/).  This offers many 
advantages not available to a small group, not least protection from 
personal liability for individual volunteer contributors.

I've worked before with the lawyers and administrators at the SFC and 
its parent organisation, the Software Freedom Law Center, and they are 
wonderful, motivated people.
