This might not affect other topics, but honestly, I think the perception
what already is in existence is not clear enough for many parties on this
list. :-) Hope I could shed some light on it...

You very much did. Thank you!


Thanks! If there are questions, feel free to ask them. I elaborated on that
topic so much, as I fear that there are just false rumors spreading at the
moment. It is definitely not right that TDF is unable to handle things that
would be required due to Oracle's new step. We *are* able to handle things,
not only from the community, but also from the legal perspective. If people
doubt that, I am happy to discuss this in public as well but we never have
been asked these questions - it was simply presumed we weren't ready yet.
Which is just wrong.

Until the TDF has taken that last step, expect to be challenged about
your readiness ;-)

I'd like to take up your offer :-)

But here on this list and on the understanding that we're trying to
work together to assess for the public record how close the TDF is

TDF is so near that it had offered help to Oracle last month:
