    I especially liked something in your first idea:

        TDF should publicly endorse
        this choice, stating that the project is now hosted on Github
        and the
        development is managed by a company of the ecosystem but is –
        at the end
        of the day – always LibreOffice Online

    I think this is the seed of a great approach which we could
    pursue in the context of the ingredient brand we have been
    evolving. It would need to be designed to apply to any relevant
    project, not just LOOL. We are more likely to see TDF's mission
    advanced by encouraging and supporting fellow community members
    who try to innovate than by discussing what others should do and
    then looking for those others!
    beware that the four bullet points I mentioned in the first email
    are not intended to be split.

Thanks for the comment - I do understand, it is irritating when people cherry-pick a larger comment. Neverless, it's for a reason here. The other three bullets were specifically about LibreOffice Online and I agree with Thorsten and others that it's best to separate the attic-isation process from the specific use case, so I have focussed on your first bullet which I believe could form the basis for a general case.

I would say that the 4 bullet points are linked to the atticisation discussion as are related to the standard process of de-atticisation and for new projects led by commercial contributors.

As in this case, members of the community are wondering what they are getting back from the investment that they and TDF made on LOOL and at present we are unable to offer answers as we didn't clarify the process and the rules in advance.

Is there any other suggestions on how to deliver LOOL to our members of the community?
