We are, but it didn't help to have admission fees announced (with 
significant delay) to committers 12 hours before TAC applications closed 
(with unchanged deadlines), and just in the middle of an OpenOffice 
release vote. OpenOffice committers will learn from this, but 
circumstances didn't help this time.

You are not referring to me, of course. I never wrote that or anything 
similar to that. And if by "you" you are referring to "OpenOffice 
committers in general", I honestly don't think it is right to 
generalize. It would have been fair of you to explicitly CC the person 
who wrote that.
