However, as we had lots of irritating issues with e-mail addresses, I would like to avoid these mistakes.

Well, the real problem at OOo with such adresses was, that anybody could register at the website and then could use an @ooo mail address.
So *anybody* could claim to have some connection to OOo.

It's evident that accounts are only for those who work for/with TDF and are eligible to represent them in certain aspects, like the SC or administrators.

For LibreOffice, I'm a bit hesitant to hand out, as this may seem like people are acting on behalf of TDF, causing liability issues. Maybe I'm too touchy, so I'm happy for comments, which is why I am writing this mail. :-)

I don't see, that we will run into the same troubles as OOo. We have a defined membership process, people can only become members, if they did some work to further our projects and will continue to do so. So becoming a TDF member is a privilege, that needs to be earned. Why should we not show, that we welcome our members by giving a mail address? Besides the already mentioned fact, that longer domain names are ugly, I'd like to keep it stupid simple: - TDF representatives (SC, ESC, BoD, MC ...) get mail aliasses
- approved members get mail aliasses
