Hi James,

I was wondering what everyones plans where for there roles.
At what point is everyone planning to resign and step aside?

And should it be something that we all do at the same time to show our
support for the new foundation?

I have suspended my role until OOo 3.3 comes out. Looking at recent 
e-mails and yesterday's Community Council discussion, it looks like we 
are forced to choose for "one side" - I won't comment who sees two sides 
and who doesn't.

Most likely, most people with official roles won't have them for too 
long anymore.

Sad, but even confirms the step we're taking, if one single contributor 
forces people to "decide", whereas the majority of the community doesn't 
force anyone.

Well, such is life.


I'm not on the LibO SC or on the OOo CC, but as Co-Lead of Docs at OOo
(an official role), I keep expecting to get a "please resign, due to
conflict of interest" email from someone at OOo in the near future. 

I've been thinking about resigning before that happens, but I've been
waiting to see what happens. It's now becoming more clear what is
happening. So... James, I like your idea of all of us doing it together
to show our support for TDF.


Hi Jean,

Well as it happens the SCALE organizers specifically invited LibreOffice
to the event and will again supply a booth. An acceptance email has been
sent - so it's time to start planning the show.

The dates are Feb. 25-27, 2011.

The call for papers is currently underway [1]

A few folks have said they will be there and are willing to help in the
booth, Joyce and I will fly out to attend. 

I had kind of hoped to push this email to the new mailing list as a
silly jester to open it..*smile*..but as they say, the best made plans.
