I have to confess my surprise; and I do trust that your mandate and the
decision-making process that led to it is publicly documented.

that happens to everyone, no worries about that. But let's avoid such
short notices in the future.

Actually you ask a good question. I am representing my own company
here, and as it turns out I'm also one of the members of the Document
Foundation's steering committee. But you can request to have another
representative of the foundation joining in, if necessary.

I'm not saying it has anything to do with OOo, I'm merely pointing out
that such an event in *its current schedule* (not its relevance nor its
concept) is detrimental to the LibreOffice Conference, and that, if
necessary the LibreOffice Conference will have an ODF MasterClass
