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?
