Hi Drew,

Governance principles are more important than ownership
Just some thoughts,

How often can someone have 'just some thoughts', but in the same time
add very wise ideas and words to our list...
Four times - maybe Guinness book of Records :-) Anyway, thanks a lot Drew.

Your 'thoughts' about culture, stewardship, decision making and
governance, describe very well the way in which I experienced (most of)
the work we (the people that started The Document Foundation) did the
past months.

Moreover: we know that it is needed to bring more clarity in the ideas
of governance. So that will start soon. Fact is, that at the moment odd
things as setting up lists, wiki's and such, keeps many of us quite busy.

But the topic is high on our agenda. Won't take long - I hope. And I
will be delighted with your help and wordings in that process.

Kindest regards,

Not such new thoughts, however a timely reminder from our community history.

Thanks for jogging the memory Drew, I'd forgotten about it.  It was one of 
those gems that just sort of faded from the collective memory.

That whole thing is worth reviving it speaks a hell of a lot of sense and fits 
TDF remarkably well. 

When one comes to think about it we done a lot of this before or at least 
thought about it and in a lot of cases, this being the perfect example, put 
text to wiki but it never went any further probably because of the inertia of 
the bureaucracy, not sure, my memory is only of one looking on in interest, so 
could be faulty.  :)  .
