The Eclipse Foundation is “re-domiciling the legal entity
that controls The Eclipse Foundation from the US to Europe”
Seems like Europe is already accounting for a much bigger chunk of
contributions than the US:
Membership dues will eventually be stated in Euros and a new
version of the membership agreement will be coming down the line to
reflect the foundation's new status as a Belgian entity.
This reader comment
gives some other examples of Open Source projects where either their
organizations or the bulk of their contributors are not (or no longer)
US-centric. E.g. The Document Foundation (which runs the LibreOffice
project) is based in Berlin.
