Can you explain to me how "competence" can be assessed in the absence
of a clearly defined specification?  Can you also clarify why to you
think that the TDF is competent to make that decision, instead of
leaving it up to a discussion between potential buyers and vendors?

I do not think that a discussion between two completely different views
is of any benefit for the project. You have all the rights to criticize
my views, but I have the rights to consider your views as wrong.

The future will tell if you are right or I am right. TDF Certification
is a challenge, based on 7 years of experience inside the OOo project
and endless discussions with third parties who find it difficult to sell
their services because they are not certified.

I am not saying that this is the best possible option, but is an option
while dreaming about an independent organization created by potential
buyers and vendors is just a dream which I have heard many times.

If our project will end up in an independent organization certifying
competence in a better way than we do, we will probably pursue the best
option. For the time being, we need to answer the issue of third parties
which have problems in selling their services because they are not
certified, and of corporate users who are looking or even asking for
certified professionals.

Best regards.
