If you or others wish to see this development continue, I would
suggest that you rally one or more of the SC members to overturn the
decisions made at the most recent meeting and allow autonomy within
the functional teams.

I hope you have gone through my previous email to the website mailing list. Rallying does not work now, and it will not work in the future. I hope to have explained why the process adopted has not worked, and at the end has generated a decision that some people do not like.

Although being perfectly qualified as a corporate marketing director, I do not act as a marketing director within the community. Although being trusted by many, I prefer to get consensus for most decisions I take or I suggest.

Please understand that working in a cubicle at the very best solution, without getting consensus before, does not belong to this community and in general to free software communities. You cannot say "once you see it you will love it", because volunteers - and here we are all volunteers - prefer to have a say in decisions, even if this is just an "ok, you are the master here".

Please refrain from going on in the wrong direction. I hope I have provided enough hints (and Michael has added some English prose to this in another message) for you to understand which might be the road to follow to be listened. I have provided five questions which I hope will find an answer.

If my English is bad to the point that it is impossible to understand what I am writing, please ping me and I am sure we can find the time to discuss on the phone.

Ciao, Italo
