It seems, from reading comments so far, that some are in favor of a
foundation and some are not.  Many ideas have been shared to the listserv
and our initial proposal remains on the wiki.

As a stake holders in this -- LibLime remains interested in compromise;  is
it possible that a mutually acceptable set of conditions can be developed
among us all?

Is discussing the options in person - in 10 days - the most logical next
step?   Is talking with us / working on this topic something that interested
parties are willing and able to do at KohaCon?
