Hi Michael, all,

I'm not used to an email thread where the subject was changed without
notice (for the second time).

If you take me as an external observer, the opposite is true.
Collabora is home for many experts, every single one always
supportive, and never acted against the interests of the project.

    Thank you for your kind words Heiko - much appreciated.

it's great to have a lot of certified developer, which are able to work
on LibreOffice. But if you have a look on e.g. you see that most
of them are contracted by Collabora.

The whole discussion in the original thread was about the way decisions
were made by TDF and its board. It's not possible to have board members
responsible for the whole budget on one side of the table and a
contractor, which is connected with some board members and bids on parts
of the budget, on the other side of this table.

This was completed by the ranking from the ESC / certified developers on
tender proposals, because there are also a number of developers
involved, which are connected to those companies/organizations.

Thus there is no room for biding on a tender of the 2022 budget from
those companies / organizations. If TDF wouldn't follow such rule, it
has a compliance issue and an issue with its reputation as charity
