Hello Anthony,

Its not essential to have the zotero server as part of it although that
is a nice feature.
It is now up-to Florian perhaps to voice his opinion?

hmm... why? :-)

 it would be good
to see this idea taken to the next level as it to me seems to be a win
win situation, Suppose we could always vote on it. 

So what could be done is you proposing this to the BoD on board-discuss,
and come up with a detailed proposal about this.

Quickly what sort of
approach would need to be taken by TDF if they where to approach the
Zotero project? beyond me anyway I just want to be able to take the
credit that I was the one who suggested the partnership - I would much
rather not get tied up with all the bureaucratic nonsense that goes on
with negotiating deals like that, besides it is beyond me & I feel I am
unworthy of even implementing this idea. another perhaps barrier is the
fact that I have no knowledge in negotiating even the meanest of deals
(except for Art - that's where I kind of excel)

Well, taking credit works on some level if you implement the idea and
contribute time, efforts, artwork, code, documentation, etc. ,
otherwise, ideas are very cheap.  :-)

You are referring to the client component. The server is not free, open


These might be of interest:

You can setup a server to store Zotero files, but it's not a
trivial process and it lacks any and all ZOtero social features/web
front-end. It's even advised against (for corruption risks) by Zotero.

Agree regarding setup:
