So - proposal - if no agreement is coming then a vote?
Either that or let the SC choose as I read the minutes.

I don't think the Document Foundation community is ready for a
democratic vote. Probably every move and decision taken so far has been
taken by the Steering Committee, and I can accept that this oligarchy
stays in place until the moment when we have projects and some
democratic procedures set up.

When they say the "website list" should decide, they have probably in
mind some kind of "website project" with minimal structure, that hasn't
happened yet. Or they just thought it would have been easy to reach

At Oo.o I served as an observer for a few Community Council elections

But then a vote was needed according to the procedures. Here I could
just bring some dozen Drupal fanatics to the list and win the poll
(Christian, I'm not saying you couldn't find an equal number of
Silverstripe fanatics!). But this would simply not be the right thing
for the Document Foundation site.

Andrea, Ben, Keith offer to build out the Drupal solution.

My contribution would be more in planning than in actually building, as
I specified.

What do you think?

As bad as it can be, the Document Foundation is still an oligarchy. Let
the SC choose. Then if people believe a simple majority vote is best we
can go that way, but I'm not sure times are ready for this.
