Hi Florian, all!

Shall we unify these?


Yes, these are different. If I remember correctly, the mention of OOo 
communities etc in these "affirmations" was at the early stages of
creation of the TDF/LibreOffice when the "movement" of communities
occurring. We should definitely re-align these.

Well, I think we have the following situation here:
      * TDF has _still_ the aim to "facilitate the evolution of the
        (former) community"
      * TDF has to consider the interests of the new community members
        (new to LibreOffice, having not participated within the OOo
      * TDF has - in the long-run - to enable the community by
        contentiously maintaining the "open, independent, and
        meritocratic organization"

In my personal point-of-view, this slightly revised text may be used
until we have the final foundation set-up:

        The Document Foundation has the mission of facilitating the
        evolution of the LibreOffice Community into a new, open,
        independent, and meritocratic organization over the next few
        months. An independent foundation is a better reflection of the
        values of our contributors, users and supporters, and will
        enable a more effective, efficient and transparent community.
        TDF will protect past investments by building on the
        achievements of the first decade with, will
        encourage wide participation within the community, and will
        co-ordinate activity across the community.

At least, all important points are kept (especially the "achievements of
the first decade" - which is related to OOo but LibO).
