 Dear members of the community,

If we think that we indeed have a better community model and software development model, our best way of showing that is by demonstrating how it is supposed to work. The ongoing discussions about old, bad working models will only take our energy when getting our new version out.

Best wishes to all of you.

Best Regards

I've been intending to check how many CC members are Oracle employees
and how many are not. Do they really have the votes to force these

They have all the votes, basically many developers in Hamburg are either
leads or co-leads of a project. So, when the voting comes, they might be
democratically incited by their managers to cast the right vote. The
tentacles ORCL has on the community structures was nicely shown when
they encouraged all project leads from ORCL to vote against Thorsten
Behrens as product development representative, in spite of quite a good
support he had in non-ORCL community part. The actually had to put
against him a straw candidate being an ORCL employee because nobody in
the other part of the community did see any reason to propose anybody
else then Thorsten.

But, even if they did not have the votes, did Robert Mugabe need to win
elections to be president?
