Hi Marco,

The real question was "why didn't the TDF founders who have/had
official roles in OOo publicly resign from those roles on Sept 28th,
one second BEFORE announcing the birth of TDF? Would'nt it have been
much more proper, considering that creating TDF is basically saying in
public "the way Oracle is handling OOo sucks so much that we can't
take it anymore"? Why all this surprise now?"

Speaking for myself,
I worked with the other cc members for years, And yes, there are moments that the way Oracle acted was 'sub-optimal' (or whatever people may experience and label that) but that never was a reason to fight or leave. (And also that only could be a derived, secondary or how do I say that, motive behind the foundation.) Since I know that the other cc members (some, partly) are interested in finding ways to work together I just did not expect that they were not looking from another perspective at that moment, then to make me (and the others) leave immediately.
Looking back, I could have chosen different, obviously.
