KNIME Governance - gGmbH, Foundation, Community, etc

Are there any discussions regarding the governance of KNIME source code being conducted by a community based entity?

Specifically, are there any efforts to form a non-profit (501(c)(3), gGmbH, etc.), community-based stewardship organization to help ensure the availability and growth of the KNIME codebase? 

Such an organization would provide transparency and help to deter (possible) commercially motivated strategies to prevent source code access or community participation in the development process, while increasing the vitality of the KNIME community and steering/funding developers.

There are many good examples of non-profit, community governance of Free/Open Source projects, including:

Also, I appreciate the power and flexibility of KNIME. I wish the best for this toolkit and community! :-)
