Hi Florian!

I received some complaints that the wording on the TDF website
( is not accurate.

While the meta tag correctly states "The Document Foundation has the
mission of facilitating the evolution of the LibreOffice Community into
a new, open, independent, and meritocratic organization over the next
few months", the website itself says that TDF is already a foundation,
which is not totally correct.

I therefore propose we change that text slightly, until we are legally

Any proposals? Shall we just remove the first bullet point for the moment?

Well, I remember some discussions when we worked on the mission
statement - the difficulty to distinguish between the legally
established foundation and the group/community/activity working towards
that goal.

So my proposals ...

If we state "Foundation" (without "The" and "Foundation") let's state
"activity" - I'd like to keep this first bullet point. Its our
history :-)

If we say "The Document Foundation", how about saying "The Document
Foundation group" or "The Document Foundation activity".

I know the latter might sound a bit passive, but it might suite our
needs until the legal status is established.
