I can see how you might believe this, but I'm not sure it is grounded in
fact or experience.

Hi Allen, oh, I was referring to LibreOffice / TDF here.

Regardless of who's "fault" this is, had the discussions been done in public
and involved all of the community instead of a select group, the results
might have been different.

You lost me here - it was Oracle who decided this behind closed
doors. If that was the point you wanted to make earlier, then I of
course agree that this was unfortunate.

That's water under the bridge at this point, but given the
results, a little bit of introspection and willingness to make
accommodations might benefit everyone.

That's universally true, indeed. :)
