Hi Charles,

Else we would have left OOo because of a "dictatorial" behavior of
Oracle, to get that behavior from the SC.
(Out of the frying pan into the fire?)
I don't see it that way. It's perhaps misleading to call a dictatorial
behavior anything that does not suit your vision. 

The Drupal site was NOT our vision. 
It was based on an earlier decision by the SC itself.

What has changed from the last decision to warrant a complete turn around?

And regarding the "dictatorial" behavior, consider your sentences-
1. Who the hell are you anyway?
2. What part of that don't you understand? 

They are not exactly the shining examples of the customary European politeness.
Imperious at best, dictatorial at worst.

Besides, Free and
Open Source Software is not exactly democratic. I can't really seem to
understand this notion that Free Software  = I do whatever I want. That
only applies to code, and yet, with limits. 

Again, we were working according to SC's past decisions, not our own.
So what's wrong in questing that sudden change of mind?

Simply, we have a website a team. It seems some people are not happy
with that so they will complain about anything that does not fit what
they would have hoped. It is unavoidable, but it is equally useless to
try to pressure contributors (and the SC) into decisions that are
opposite to what's already been decided.

But surely we can question arbitrary (=dictatorial) decisions, and expect a POLITE answer?
