not entirely sure what happened here but the samba
technical archives appear to be having difficulties
displaying a message that i was able to access from
someone else's browser, yesterday.
from memory, if i recall correctly, you mentioned
something about me giving samba a "fait accompli" - is
that right? i'm so so sorry if i have the wrong end
of the stick on this one and it wasn't you that said
i really do have to point out that if you _did_ say
that, it could not be further from the truth.
as gerry rightly points out, i have no authority, and
never did - as do none of us.
all i can do is make suggestions: this _particular_
suggestion has an added incentive for it to be
accepted - that _if_ it is accepted, the foundation
receives lots of code.
that's the carrot - putting it bluntly.
the stick is that if the members that i assume would
be there break the conditions of the charter - they
lose what they were given.
now, i've been thinking a bit more since i sent that
on the basis that should the directors break the
conditions of the charter, they'd likely get a bit
more than a slapped wrist - on reflection, the "stick"
conditions that i initially proposed _probably_ aren't
especially as these charters (e.g. the ASF's) are
legally binding (usually in delaware :)
.. what could be worse for [the proposed] SSF board
members than to break the conditions of the charter
that they are there to uphold?
