Hi Michael and Christoph,

The work on the Drupal development has halted as per the Steering Committee statement.
There seems to be a disconnect between what the community/mailing list
groups want and what the Steering Committee is willing to support.

From my discussions with the individuals involved with the Drupal
development there seems to be a consensus that until the Steering
Committee allows the individual community groups some autonomy to make
their own decisions and avoids overruling the groups it is unlikely
that the development will continue. The vast majority of the website
team has been supporting and contributing to this development as it is
seen as the 'way forward' but the SC and some founding members have
made it clear that this development will not continue.

Personally I would like to see 'website team lead(s)' elected within
the website team, by the website team and decisions made at a
community level upheld without the SC stepping in.
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 am truly lost in this maze. 

So far, we had made good progress, as follows: 

We identified 23 roles in the LibO ecosystem. 
The idea was to create an integrated workflow that caters to their needs all.
A given team can assume multiple roles. Some roles may be re-assigned later.
The website was supposed to have a workflow that allows all roles to work collaboratively.
It was also supposed to help any contributor in taking up any role of his choice.

The website was also going to integrate internet-based tools for the entire SDLC.
In this, we were going to consult the people who are currently playing one or more of the 23 roles.

AFAIK, the current "SilverStripe" website is not being designed with these goals at all.
That is why we were talking about developing another website with strategically planned AI. 

Why is that goal ditched all of a sudden?

And what on earth is going on??

Note that the "second" website has nothing to do with what CMS we should use. 

Just put aside the perennial arguments about SilverStripe and Drupal for a moment.
