When in the past it was suggested by several people to get in touch with
them to explore a closer collaboration, this was always refused because
it would have "offended" John Haller (and they were linked only by the
Italian community).

So, I do not see why they should link to our infrastructure when they
have been ignored (if not considered as second class citizens because of
their geographical origins). In fact, they are doing a better job than
to sum up and make it short and clear:

a) the accusation goes into the direction of TDF's board of directors in
this case;

b) it incorporates the accusation of a discrimination because of
someones geological origin (national origin).

It's surprising to read such text and belief from the main contact
person of TDF and staff member for marketing and PR.

seemed the current board has no issue with this statement and
accusation, because there is no reply from any of its members yet.

If the board accepts the statement, that could have some impact on the
status of the foundation.

I had not followed this thread actively since its beginning, as I don't have
the use for a portable version of LibreOffice and never really had one in the past.

I will say however that you seem to be asking the questions and making the
answers yourself. Your a) does not make sense. Italo is alluding to issues I
myself heard many years ago concerning the different portable LibreOffice
projects, one of them who seemed to have a problem with TDF. I'm not sure
what this meant or what this means today.
But it does not go into the direction of TDF's board, it's a thread on
@discuss. As to your point b): are you even serious?

So there's no accusation coming from anyone but you in this case. I note your last
statement however, and I'm a bit concerned about what you meant: how does
this discussion have an impact on the status of the foundation? Why do you
want to involve the board on such matter? What's your turf?
