yes, that's clear to me I have read the site: 

But let me tell you the consequence that I see: 

If there is no concensus, even after we have discussed, then you could please

but ... I do _not must_ have to ask and if I do not do it, then the problem
remains unsolved.

What I'm saying is the "Lazy Consensus" is a way if someone wants to do something
specific, then he gets no consent is and there are other opinions, then a other is
not automatically does the work.

I hope that's right?

Yes, i agree

yes, you did, but there is one detail: the AOO community can not decide what to do
an external forum, and as I see it would have been necessary because you said:

"- a possible migration so that the two forums are hosted on the same 
Platform ..."

But this is not my interest, I just want to temporarily create a hyperlink to the
external forum until we have a German-language forum at AOO. 

What can I say to explain: 
Please respect that the external forum does not want to be part of another
project. This is not a decision forever, but it is the decision for now.
