Well, the only one that's really comparable is Debian (unless you want
to consider *BSD one distro in three organizations ;-).  GNU itself is
ruled by a Mad God dictatorship (but thankfully he ignores most of it
almost all the time), and the rest that matter are either copy-distros
or commercial (even the prospect of getting paid seems to make most
people fairly cooperative :-).  Debian is not what I would call a
smoothly functioning organization (though I can't make a comparison to
Gentoo, being directly involved in neither).
