Following the release of the initial proposal I've received some feedback 
in private.  After discussions with Hans Tovetjaern and others the 
following revised proposal is offered.

SPI resolution 2014-03-20.rtb.1

1. Chakra is a community based Linux distribution intended to provide a
full operating system primarily for desktop users and is a substantial and
significant Free Software project.  Chakra fosters, promotes and increases
access to software systems available to the general public and supports,
encourages and promotes the creation and development of software available
to the general public.

2. The Chakra developers would like SPI's support and assistance,
including legal assistance, holding property and taking donations.


3. Chakra is formally invited to become an SPI Associated Project,
according to the SPI Framework for Associated Projects, SPI Resolution
1998-11-16.iwj.1-amended-2004-08-10.iwj.1, a copy of which can be found at

4. H W Tovetjaern is recognised by SPI as the authoritative decision maker
and SPI liaison for Chakra.  In the event that H W Tovetjaern is
uncontactable, Neophytos Kolokotronis will take over as SPI liaison.
Future liaisons will be appointed in turn by the sitting project liaison,
or by a simple majority of existing Chakra developers.

5. This invitation will lapse, if not accepted, 60 days after it is
approved by the SPI Board.
