Quite agree. But then what would be? I would have to presume that the sinequanon is that no
change in policy can compromise the Apache Way. And no one license comprises it.

In regard to the AOO/TDF talks, it’s important that the PMC and community at large understand
what is at stake in accepting the terms laid down by TDF and how those terms may (?) compromise
the Apache Way, at least as expressed in the AOO Project.
