this is where the OOo project has missed the point.

I know it.

Nevertheless, a foundation isn't needed to start a certification program.

Any vendor may start it, with more or less official and international character.

And, by saying the truth, why a TDF certification program should be better than a hypothetical "IBM LIbO certified professional" label, in a wider Community?

I'm surely missing something, but *as far as what I've read in this list is concerned*, this foundation is starting to appear like an empty box: few needs to exist and even less powers.

Please, get me right, I'm really trying to understand, because I've read several different opinions from TDF founders and I know a consensus has still to be found about this matter. However, the vehemence of some voices let me think that a majority may already exist in your group, although there hasn't been a vote yet.

Or, at least, that any decision different from the opinion expressed, for example, by Michael Meeks, may cause more problems than anything else during the foundation start-up phase, independently of the fair evaluation of the alternatives.
