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.

I don't suggest you just accept the proposal Rob made.
I would like to learn in more details on what do you propose, even if it
