Is this the case in a volunteer-based organization like ODP? Does a volunteer editor report to someone, who reports to someone else, etc.?
I'm kind of curious about the accountablity factor in such a large volunteer-based organization.
I don't know that there was a specific "agreement." Netscape agreed to fund ODP a couple of months before Netscape was bought by AOL. There are press releases
From what I understand, the existence of ODP was totally irrelevant to AOL. They just got it along with the rest of the deal.
