of conflict. AFAIK, major development activities are scrutinized by both
bodies, as they are ranked in order of importance, suggested, approved
and transformed to tenders, or not considered for tendering.
I totally agree, extending that process to cover significant tasks that
internal developers would work on may be a solution.
Development activities which are not considered for tendering, or just
ignored, could probably be developed by TDF without creating disruptions
(or even discussions).
To double-check nobody is "secretly" working on that as well or is
planning to do so, discussing/mentioning larger items first certainly
(But that doesn't only apply for work done by TDF developers; e.g. the
