as you all know, we are working to make The Document Foundation an
independent self-governing meritocratic Foundation. This Foundation
should be lead by it's members, based on their merit.
One of the very basic questions to answer is:
"Who is a member at TDF."
Well - we (the Steering Committee) do not have a detailed answer on
this, as we think that the voice of our contributors should be
respected for this very important topic. So we want to discuss this
here, before we come to a decision.
To get things started, I put some notes at the wiki:
Maybe defining what is not a member, could help out clear things up.
Well, we would like to avoid going into negative definitions. The idea
is that we should be able to have people contributing effectively
before claiming their membership, that's all.
How about this:
The Document Foundation is the umbrella group where all projects answer
to it. Presently, under this umbrella, there is only 1 project:
LibreOffice. There is however, the potential for further project
development that could be added later under TDF umbrella.
The LibreOffice project is a project under the TDF umbrella and will
provide 2-3 representatives (either by meritocracy or community vote)
who sit on the SC in an advisory capacity. This clearly defines the
membership of the LibO project.
Should any other project come to fruition, these would come under the
umbrella of the TDF and more representatives could be added at this point.
Membership of the TDF:
The TDF would be consist of the founding members (as of present). And
the collection of an agree number of project under the umbrella of the
TDF = SC. The SC will have full voting rights as to the workings of the
whole of TDF and umbrella group.
The umbrella groups will have 1 representative from their advisory group
rise to the SC board. The "rise" of a member to the SC from a project
(in this case LibO) would require a certain amount of votes from 2-3
members of the advisory project.
Major financial outside contributors would provide 1 representative
only, and would gain voting status less equal in weight to SC members.
The representative would be assigned by the outside contributor.
In the case of a loss of the SC member, the SC will approach an umbrella
project and offer a seat to that individual through and internal SC vote.
How would this sound? In this model the TDF SC remains in control at all
times and the sub-groups and outside contributors will have a vote on
decisions (the outside contributors having less of a vote than the
