Good enough. 

I don't have any issues with the SC decision at all. In fact, this same unequivocal reply should 
have come two months ago.

As I said in my first mail, we should not be forced to second-guess the SC's intent.
Unfortunately, that is exactly what we have been doing because SC's message was not clear earlier.

For that matter, the appointment of the as website team also came as a surprise.
This was not announced through the most obvious channel (in this mail list).
The information trickled through David as part of another discussion, which is very strange. 

Let us hope the organizational announcements are made more gracefully in future.

the "Why?" pages]

Hello Narayan, everyone,

Just a reminder:

We will not consider any move to another CMS, platform, etc. until at least 6 months. At that 
stage (in 6 months or so) we might/may perhaps *consider* (not necessarily approve) a move to a 
platform such as Drupal.

Until that stage:
1) no discussion about Drupal on this list.
2) no "major overhaul" of the website.

What this does not mean:
1) we can't change the way some of the content is presented on the website. (see the wiki page 
for this)
2) we can't improve the website in minor ways.
3) we can't fix bugs.

Yes, there comes a time when the website is "completed" and where only incremental improvements 
are needed.
Again: LibreOffice is not about a website nor about letting people satisfy their passion about 
web design, at least not primarily. We do not want a website that keeps on changing because 
people think their way is better. 
We (the SC) do not want to reopen yet another thread about these topics. The level of energy and 
effort spent on this topic (the website) is ridiculously high compared to what we need to to work 
on. We're therefore glad that there are people who want to help but there comes a point where 
it's not helpful, because someone's always pushing, pushing and always pushing. Same thing with 
respect to the website confcall: we haven't agreed on working again on overhauling the website, 
we haven't agreed on changing the website team, which for the sake of clarity is composed of the 
same 4 people the SC has appointed.

Thank you,

Sent with Sparrow
