I don't this characterization is entirely fair, Lodewijk. The opinions  
of the community and the chapters about governance of the Foundation  
and its projects, as expressed here in foundation-l and elsewhere,  
were weighed heavily in the course of the Board's consideration of its  
governance issues.
