FWIW, the Linux Foundation will hire full time staff if their
Collaborative Projects can provide the budget. Other projects are
supported this way, and the LF has many people on staff under this
sort of umbrella. The LF takes care of everything except the funding.
If the OFA is serious about having full time paid workers then
it would make sense to revisting becoming a LF collaborative project
to gain this kind of administrative support.
The Intern approach OPNFV project is using may also be interesting for
the OFA as would be a way to fund project based development like Sean
was talking about.
