I agree with you Italo. But, as a long lasting active member of the Italian
Localization Team, could I become a member of the Document Foundation? Is 
there a process for that? I mean, like applying for the PLIO?

I wonder: do I have the right to participate in the Foundation, not only as
a volunteer in a specific area (in my case, localization)?

I would say, definitely yes.

If you look at the web site, the foundation will be a meritocracy (I
think that Ubuntu calls it a do-ocracy, but there might be dozens of
flavours of the same concept).

My friends are working hard at opening new mailing lists, and the
localization is already active at (subscription
works as for the other lists:

We are working hard also at setting up the foundation, but in the
meantime every additional hand is really welcome, although it may be
difficult to give each one a specific role now. Things are a little
hectic at the moment (we have all reduced our amount of sleep).

You know, OOo is really huge, and TDF will not be a foundation like many
others, because it will be a baby with the size of an adult.

What I can suggest at the moment is to watch carefully the progress, and
jump on board as soon as possible.

Of course, if you have a specific question, feel free to drop me a line.
Thanks, Italo
