Hi Andreas,

I'd recommend to read through paragraph 2 of the statutes. The goals of
TDF are written down there.

I'd recommend all members of the board to follow this goals very closely
and take care of TDF's assets and pay attention that they are not
diluted or (partially) damaged.
I'm sure all members of the board know quite well the articles of
TDF's statutes.
I'd be happy if so.

The issue I see is that, in absence of expressed clear preferences
from the board of trustees, some members of the board may apply their
own interpretation of some selected articles.
I know this from my involvement during some years.

It would be very helpful, and I would be very grateful, if apart from
reminding us or Article 2 (maybe we could also add 8.4 and the new CoI
Policy) you could also help the board of directors taking decisions by
telling us what your preferences are.
Yes, and there are the reasons stated why TDF has it's current financial
state, something to take care of (on a variety of grounds).

In this specific matter what would you prefer that TDF does for your

- Would you like to have LOOL's repository to be re-opened so that you
and others can contribute to it?
- Would you like to forget about it and focus more on other areas?
- Other choices?

I'm not a software engineer by education thus I don't think that I'd be
able to contribute to LOOL.

But in my opinion the fork of LOOL from a member of the board was not
taken in the best interest of TDF/LibreOffice future.

I, as member of this community and member of the board, have already
expressed my opinion but when it comes to voting I will (from the
18/02/2020) represent only 1 vote.
I know this situation, one of the reasons I didn't run for the board
again some years ago.

It's up to you and the rest of the community to send a clear message
so that the members of the board will listen and vote for a proposal
that matters to all of you.

I'm for some reasons currently not a member of TDF's bodies anymore. I'm
not involved in any tasks here anymore. I use my available spare time
for volunteer work in other environments yet.
