the rift, that would only be good for LO and the TdF.

Allen, how can you, with a straight face, ask people here to come
over to a different project, that likely noone here is really happy
with, that was setup as a fait acompli, marketed as the "natural
upstream", removes rights from people's contributions, and is
effectively competing (by how the proposal reads)?

Whatever good intentions you may have, but basic psychology must
tell you that this "hey folks, come all over, we need your help
here" is not gonna fly - quite the contrary, it comes across as
rather condescending.

Please move to a different strategy - if your intentions are good,
the current one is not helping your cause - if they're ill, I'm even
less willing to tolerate it.
