Dear list members,

n my opinion the way this discussion transitioned from "congratulations 
for the great work" (and by the way congratulations to all those who 
worked on it, this is certainly a very useful resource that I hope will 
continue being improved & translated in the future !) to nitpicking over 
one sentenced is quite typical of the issues of communication on our 

I'd like(as many "average" community members that almost never write 
here I suppose) to hear more on projects conducted within the OSMF and 
on structured discussions about major stakes for the projects, and less 
anecdotal disputes or one-sentence personal answers. Just think of what 
we could do with the time collectively lost not only writing but also 
reading (for the dozens of OSMF members who do) these messages...

Sorry to contribute to the ongoing spamming but this is really a 
deterrent for a larger involvement of many community members - I'm 
afraid for many of us most OSMF emails go directly to trash during the 
yearly pre-election peak. Happy to hear if board candidates have 
suggestions on how to improve collectively :-)
