I want to express my gratitude to the people who have put up this letter on meta [1)

I see it as a much more professional way of expressing movement opinions, then the usual Rfc's (that also already exist related to the 2030 movement brand project).

I do like that both entities (Affiliates, User groups and Chapters) and users can express their opinions. And also that with the user signatures, there areĀ  info on what projects they are active on and in what capacity.

Besides being an very strong message to the Board, I believe this way can also indicate ways of governing in the movement. In the strategy the creation of a Global Council is recommended. But I wonder if any type of representative body works well in our movement, or if it will just beanother entity for the "community" to get angry with.

Could this type of expressing the will of the movement be an alternative to creating a new body? And if we should learn to evolve this type of expressing opinions even further?
