You are correct. And I am aware that budgets are limitied. But I don't what
the budget will be nor decide where the money of the ASF flows. I can only
ask for some of it regarding a project. And even then, I won't consider
doing so for something that could be perceived as a pet project of Pierre
Smits. If ASF offices do want an OFBiz implementation to work with, maybe
they should go ahead and involve both INFRA and the OFBiz community.

I understand the concerns. I myself have them as well when dealing with
volunteer organisations. But - and apparently - the ASF has this solved
regarding the INFRA office. The same could be worked out for the other
solutions and/or services it needs to have in place.

You just need to ask the right questions to the right people.

Best regards,
