Thanks for the link.

So 900k from NetApp/Instaclustr, 900k from University of Canberra (a
public research university), and 500k from the ACT government, but the
projects "will be aligned with the interests of Instaclustr and NetApp".
So the companies will probably benefit from this arrangement, but how
about the public?

Also I wonder what "ownership" means in the following paragraph. Is it
simply the copyright holder of free software code contribution?
