I have not seen this, especially in regards to this thread. Argument is
occurring on this list instead.

Fair enough, but I do not share that trust. I fear the project claiming
unique difference, and damaging the Foundation, rather than an
understanding of how we can solve our mission together. I believe AOO has
unique characteristics and that the ASF needs to adapt, but I do not
believe the community cares to properly see through those changes. I see
self-righteous bullying instead.

The ASF and the people that make us what we are, are not perfect. We don't
know everything. But we *do* deserve consideration to make things Right.
AOO is an awesome opportunity or us all, and we should do what we can for
their success. It must happen with an old, and with a new, community
working together.
