Hi Paolo,
Hi Florian,

Thanks Florian for the new proposal.

Personally I do like the idea of having a Lux-based company.

I still have some questions about the "TDF Services SIS Proposal Draft"

1) "TDF’s fully owned Social Impact company (Société d’Impact Sociétal)"
--> Does that mean that the TDF is also fully responsible? Then I have
to ask what is different to the general idea that the TDF can do it on
its own without having another layer? How does this work with Germans
law of a foundation?

2) "TDF may also decide to buy services from TDF Services, once its
fully operational, and use it as itsown service provider to streamline
and make more efficient the running of shared operations."
Does this mean that the TDF won't open any new code-tenders but simply
hand the tasks over?

3) I'm still missing (hence might not be worked on in this published
proposal) what happens if something goes wrong? How can the TDF take
down SIS and take over and regain the App Store rights and existing App
Store users?

4) and of course, what Stephan Ficht asked. ;-)

Best regards,

Dennis Roczek

as discussed during the last board calls, the board is currently
collecting proposals on a TDF subsidiary. For that, we've created a
folder "TDF Subsidiary" in the Nextcloud "TDF Members" share, where the
various ideas will be collected.

The folder is also publicly available at

Please do consider all content as a draft, work-in-progress state that
is subject to discussion and changes. Note that the documents do not
represent any official board opinion, statement or vote, but are drafted
by individual members or groups.

The first proposal added so far is the one by Paolo Vecchi on a
Luxemburg entity.

The board is eager to get the discussion started, preferably on the
public board-discuss mailing list.
