Subject Re: Summit Proposal
Date Mon, 06 Jun 2011 17:22:18 GMT
Actually some of us at ConCom are already deep into discussion about what
meetings would best support better understanding between parties.

As an Apache member, I'm normally quite willing to see email thrash
eventually work itself out...but this news has caused so much concern (and
circular conversation) that its probably better to start meeting face to
face as possible.

I would help run these meeting(s) if asked.  It wouldn't be the first time
I've helped work through issues for the OOo community.
