From robert_w...@us.ibm.com
Subject TDF/LO, what is the art of the possible?
Date Sat, 04 Jun 2011 00:09:17 GMT
If someone on the list from TDF is authorized to answer this (or can get 
such authorization), I'd appreciate an official stance on the following 
questions.  This would help us understand what room there is for 
negotiation and what is not worth discussing at all.

For "willing to consider it", I mean in the context of a negotiation where 
there is some give and take.  I'm not asking if you're willing to do this 
for nothing.  I just want to understand what are the deal breakers and 
where we should be focusing discussions.

I'm not interested in debating these questions in this thread, aside from 
clarifications.  We're debating these issues in other threads.  I'm just 
trying to see if we can agree on which of these directions, if any, is 
likely to be fruitful and which ones, if any, are fundamentally impossible 
for TDF/LO. 

I think we've given straightforward answers on where ASF is flexible and 
where it cannot budge.  I'd welcome similar clarity from TDF/LO, in the 
spirit of moving forward these discussions.

Regards,

-Rob
