Hi all,I believe a few comments require notes and corrections as they may mislead the community:

I understand you frustrations & your motives, but I mostly agree with Paolo: claiming Collabora Online is still TDF's,
The statement is not correct.I claimed that LibreOffice OnLine is still TDF's even if it seems we haven't yet found a way to move it forward, Collabora Online is a third party product.
and then distributing free binaries of it (which was the trigger for Collabora to leave in the first place)
The statement is not correct.Collabora actually agreed to negotiate the details of LOOL's binaries distribution so that is definitely not the trigger of the fork.
- is quite a hostile move. It would also be beyond tricky for TDF to message that to the general (FLOSS-affine) public.
I believe TDF has demonstrated to be everything but hostile even when the project it hosted and was part of the LibreOffice project has been forked without warnings.
The evolving consensus in the board it seems (though of course I cannot speak for them), is that TDF should for the moment close the chapter of LibreOffice Online.
More than a consensus I believe that we may have to resign to the fact that we may have been left with not many options unless other members of the board and the community come up with some practical options.
All the best, -- Thorsten
