of time for problems not related to TDF).

Again, just to have more info: will it be a *paid* certification?

Yes, we see it as a source of revenues for TDF, in order to fund development and other activities, although we must be careful as there will be different levels of involvement (and different fees, including zero fees for people and companies already contributing to the project with activities and developers). Also, several TDF contributors will work on the certification process. Difficult task, but challenging for everyone, as it is really a chance to define a new business model for FOSS projects.
