Hi Simon,

You're asking a development question that's not among the duties of a member of the Board of 
Directors. You're obviously welcome to ask community members about your project proposal, but I 
suggest you wait until after the election. Appropriate questions for candidates relate to their 
suitability to perform the duties of a Director of The Document Foundation[1], which definitely 
and intentionally do not include developing the code or the documentation.

The candidates invited questions. I am asking mine. Are you guys censoring me?

I am indicating that questions about development plans and intentions fall outside the scope of 
questions for Board candidates as regards their suitability for election, as the role of 
directors[1] does not include development tasks. I'm inviting you to note that observation and save 
your valid but out-of-scope question for later. I am not censoring you at this point as I hope you 
will choose to desist voluntarily.
