Sorry Simon but I've re-read the email I sent out and I don't where it
says what you imply, quite the opposite.

"See" you on Friday.

So you're saying there is no written background context for this
proposal. Has it been discussed by the Board previously? Coming into
the discussion cold is unlikely to be good.

    Hi Simon,

    thanks for asking.

    As you may have been made aware the Board has been very busy
    discussing many topics and working to propose many new
    developments, like item 4, that I'm sure will make the community
    very happy.

    All items will be the subject to a public discussion so you are
    very welcome to participate.

    Hi Florian,

    Item 4 on the agenda is a significant change to past decisions on
    the subject by the Board. Is there any background information
    such as a paper describing the rationale and impact of the change

        -> TDF board meeting with a public part, and if needed

        private part (- no topics in the private part so far -)
        -> on Friday, May 22nd at 1300 Berlin time

        For time zone conversion, see e.g.

        -> at

        as we gain good experience last time after improvements of
        the TDF
        instance from the team, if possible use Chrome browser and do
        not use
        video and until not speaking up please mute.

        -> AGENDA:

        Public Part

        1. Q&A: Answering Questions from the community (All, max. 10

            Rationale: Provide an opportunity for the community to
        ask questions
        to the new board and about TDF.

        2. Discuss: Ecosystem & Sustainability (Michael, All 15min)

            Rationale: Discussion, relevance and dependencies for TDF

        3. Discuss: Quick check of fitting prerequisites and
        procedure of the
        vote for the next agenda item (Lothar, Board members, All 5

            Rationale: Clarifying about voting of the next agenda item

        4. Voting on proposal of Paolo:  (Paolo, Board members 15

            Voting proposal via Mail from Paolo Vecchi at 16.05.,
        13.15 UTC+2: "...

            Enable the infrastructure team to deliver the following
        with TDF and LibreOffice branding:
             - docker images
             - ownCloud connector (from which we have already got
        of acceptance) for LOOL
             - once that is in place I will ask NextCloud for the
        opportunity to
        do the same
             - Univention marketplace packages for LOOL
             - all packages and connectors will be maintained and
        updated on a
        monthly basis unless urgent patches/bug fixes are required sooner
             - the latest stable version of LOOL code will be used to
        build the
             - the infrastructure oversight team will ensure that all
        that may impede the execution of this plan are identified and
             - the infrastructure oversight team should evaluate, and
        back to the BoD, if TDF should use its own Gerrit server for
        LOOL or
        Collabora's see ticket
             - LibreOffice branded documentation/help files should be
        created to
        make it as easy as possible to install docker
        images/Univention packages
             - TDF's LOOL packages will be free and supported only by
        community. No paid/support options will be made available by TDF
             - In the download page it will be made clear that if
        LOOL is used
        in enterprise environment support options are available
        through the
        members of TDF's ecosystem
           At a later stage eventual limitations in terms of concurrent
        users/documents will be discussed.

           Rationale: explanation of voting item(s), getting a valid
        result on Paolos proposal as described above

        5. Discuss: Status of redmine tickets of the board (Thorsten,
        All 10min)
