Hi  :)
Agreed.  But the founders have shown good strategic planning and  good
for the future as shown by the way things have played out  in the last few
weeks.  I think it would take time for newly  elected people to have such
commitment to the long-term  vision.
Thanks for the flowers as we also say in French :)

I  have to point out that i am not a founder and not even a regular member.
had disagreements and arguments with founders but  have always  had good
to respect even the ones i disagree with.
Even if no  more a member of the SC, I will still consider me as a founder. But
it's not  what is important to my eyes. The importance for me reside in the fact
that even  if I'm not a SC member, I'll still have a say because I'm a member of
the  Foundation, and though can express my feeling and my wills for the present
or  the future of the foundation and it's community.
And I'm sure that the new  formed SC will take them into account, we're not new
and have always shared our  knowledge and experience.

Kind regards

Hi :)
True.  Weirdly i hadn't thought of that point lol :)

I think the important issue to vote on is the Apache issue.

Vote on what exactly ?

 I was wondering if
it might be possible to collaborate with them to put a wiki-page together on the
TDF wiki so that the different lists can vote

I don't think we have a say and even less a vote on what Apache
Foundation is going to do.

First we have to see what they decide and if they are indeed going
forward with their plan to fork, (granted there is not much suspense
Then we have to see _how_ they're going to do it
Then we have to see _when_/_if_ the poddle graduate
Then we have to see _what_ they end-up doing.
Until then it is pretty much vaporware and there is not much to do,
even less to vote about.
