Would it help if you were a non-profit organization?
You could then also apply for tax-exempt status like
Python Software Foundation:
The mission statement for LWN could be something like this:
LWN.NET is an non-profit membership organization
devoted to analyzing of open source technology and news and
publication of that information. It maintains an extensive
knowledge database on Open Source distributions, technologies,
their security faults, community events and changes in all
In short, LWN.NET is an educational public charity that provides
free, independent, most upto-date information to the public about
the publicly available IT infrastructure techologies.
I don't know whether this fits into your plans and it would
definately need quite a lot of byrocratic effort and would
take several months to go through. I think you could get
some help from PSF on the byrocracy part as they've already
gone through most of it.
