Yes, but it looks like the discussion is blocked one step before
reaching a consensus on this very simple point. If the discussion
as such, I have to say that I don't feel I am represented - as a TDF
Member - by any member of the just elected board of directors (of
course, those who have expressed their opinions).

This is very sad to hear :-(  I am afraid this is a product of the
unilateral & vigorous presentation of hiring developers as the only way
forward, regardless of what the ecosystem companies have to say.

And I feel the same. Hiring developers is not the only way forward, it's one of them. We, as members, knows the ecosystem companies have needs and I (for myself) understand perfectly the market pressure. But here, as a member of TDF, we contribute with the ecosystem companies, not for them.

Of course, in case the main intention were for TDF to provide more
business-like services (like an LTS version or creating an
impression of
"donate a certain amount of money and your pet bug will be fixed"),
see very well how that might interfere significantly with the
model of ecosystem companies.

Totally agree. But I don't see the issue, as ESC and BoD members
easily stop any project before it starts, when there is a potential
of conflict. AFAIK, major development activities are scrutinized by
bodies, as they are ranked in order of importance, suggested,
and transformed to tenders, or not considered for tendering.

If assurances like these were part of the proposal, I am sure it would
be much easier to discuss - at least for me personally.  Thank you for
pointing this out!

Their is even no written proposal at the moment, but only a discussion on the pros and cons and what it could bring to the project. But it seems impossible to discuss because the ecosystem companies won't allow it. I'm sorry, I already wrote in a previous thread that TDF has failed to have a balanced position during the pandemic, caring of the charitable part of its duty, I hope we will not continue in that way because, again as a member, this is not how I feel represented.

And also Michael (W.) - thank you for your great summary!

yes, thanks Michael to have broaden my proposal and my ideas.
