Patience and persistence.  Thanks for driving this as many other open
source projects are ahead because of the effort here.  Also, we need to
thank and congratulate Mark Radcliffe from DLA.  Great work.

> Hi everyone,
> I'm very happy to report that after a lengthy process with the US
Internal Revenue Service (IRS), including an initial denial and an appeal,
the OpenStack Foundation has been granted 501c6 tax exempt status. This is
clear recognition of the positive impact that our Foundation is having on
the cloud computing industry.
> While it may seem like a small administrative matter, the long term
impact is very positive for the efforts of the Foundation and the industry,
allowing us to devote more resources to ensuring the cloud revolution is
truly open to everyone. We also hope this outcome for our Foundation
benefits other open source organizations pursuing tax exempt status with
the IRS now and in the future.
> Thank you to everyone in the OpenStack community and the greater open
source world who supported us through the process.
