Does anyone have a good HOWTO document on managing a Free Software
project in such a way that the project meets both the needs of the
sponsoring Free Software Business, and also the needs of the Free
Software community as a whole?

I'm asking because I'm in the process of launching a commercial Free
Software project for a mailing list archives system which will also
include the functionality of a web board system and the functionality
of a semi-automated SEO (Search Engine Optimization) system.  (BTW in
case someone else here also happens to be interested in this kind of
thing, I wouldn't mind doing it as a joint venture.)

Greetings, Norbert.
