Anything? (serious question, I have no idea).In essence, as a public trust, the ASF must operate in a way that does not favor one vendor or partner or collaborator "over" another. This is one reason why the ASF was, for example, unable to continue within the JCP EC, since our involvement in there provided more "benefit" to Oracle than to anyone else.Would that preclude treating TDF as a collaborative peer? Being a non-profit itself FrODeV is presumably bound by the same limitation so collaborating with it would not violate that requirement for neutrality.
It would not prevent us from working with TDF at all in the ways we've been discussing, no. -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/discuss/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
