But 80n, you were aware that we already have incorporated OSM Germany 
through the exitsting FOSSGIS e.V. - federated membership or no 
federated membership - and it would just have required a few days 
advance notice for us to set up something where FOSSGIS accepts funds 
for this and forwards the money to OSMF.

If there had been just a note on the lists saying "by the way we're 
planning this", that would have been enough to make us think about this.

Sometimes I think the foundation is hurting its own goals by being so 
damn secretive. Why did you have to make this a surprise? What was 
gained by that?
