Re: [steering-discuss] wording on TDF website


Hi :)
+1
I prefer "organisation" even if it's spelt the American way (z rather than s) 
rather than just "community".  Communities are often thought of as being highly 
dis-organised which doesn't seem fair to TDF.

As Norbert said it's been fine for 10 months does it really need changing now 
and then back again in a couple of weeks/months?
Regards from
Tom :)

Hi,

My suggestion would be to replace the words "meritocratic Foundation,

that would still create the impression that TDF is already an
organization by itself, which it legally isn't.

it may not be a 'F'oundation (as in German Stiftung) yet but it
certainly _is_ an 'organization' by all reasonable definition of the
term.

That being said... it has been 'inaccurate' for 10 month... it can
certainly remain so for the few weeks left before it become finally
'accurate'.
