Do open-source foundations have oodles and piles of cash lying around for patent trolls to scoop up?
Are open-source softwares licensed under the GPL not immune to patent trolls since there is no profit motive?

Fairly sure that the OSS "foundations" are all non-profit organisations that collect funds to pay for site hosting and put extra money into paying developers for their time, this would leave little for any troll to collect.
Note that GPLv3 section 11 specifies that a contributor grants a royalty-free patent license which should prevent a patent troll from suing.
