One word:
The TDF is not the kind of foundation that the OOo community once wanted. The TDF is a money
and PR machine for companies and LO is as dependent on these companies as once OOo of Oracle
or Sun.
I see people in the LO-community who work a lot but have little to say. Well-known people,
who once advanced and enjoyed respect there.

This would not be my way, but if developers want to follow this path, and a good software
is generated, then this good software (relatively) automatically gets market meaning.
Therefore, I will _not_ contradict this way, when it is the way which the developers want.
