Also, we may make mistakes (says this ex-officer of an association
that failed through a mix of imperfect rules drafted by experts and a

Starting a new foundation is not a quick fix and after 3+ years of
waiting for various people working on it and no idea what they've
produced, I'm very strongly in favour of joining an open association.
