It seems we need a balance then between Robert's urgency and a common agreement. I don't feel the same urgency but I'm willing to be flexible enough to try to support the goal of "getting something out now." If we want to create something common, then we'll have to take the time to come to an agreement. I did not sign up to run a non-profit, I don't have time for that, I signed up for helping ensure Free Software remains free and that developers know their options and that the community can preserve what it considers valuable to the best of its ability.

This is why we should have these discussions on a mailing list - so it is public. Transparency is of the utmost importance. In fact, I'm going to cc a public list so that they can see these discussions and note that we are working and that the community can participate.

What is the benefit of "unity" in this situation? Don't forget that most don't even see us as legitimate. :)
