if I draw a resume on the discussion in the thread  'MCC questions' I
saw basically only contributions from members that are already core
people of the foundation administration bodies or stand / stood as
candidates for these bodies.

I already mentioned that TDF currently has more than 200 members, but
only a few of them (see above) contribute to the discussion(s). Thus TDF
has not an issue with the quantity of members, but with the involvement
of them in the discussion process / the democratic process. The first
question should be, how to activate members to get a more active role in
the decision making of TDF (that was one reason to create TDF as a
membership organization).

Another issues of TDF is the inbalance. Some think that everything is
about development and developers are key (and everything else is
'Gedöns'. And the next issue is that inside the developing area of
LibreOffice there is a domination from one company. There is no real
diverse eco system yet (and since years).

And this leads to the attempt to dominate TDF and to blame the statutes
if they get in the way here, something that damages TDF.

And for a broad discussion and participation the used language (in the
process) maybe a big issue for many members, because they are not native
English speaker.
