Clarification and followup.
It has come to my attention that I in my previous post didn’t make sufficiently clear that I did talk to several members of the board before this post, and that they claimed they had made no mistakes. This post is mostly a response to that, to explain what the mistakes where.
The Chairman, Martijn Faassen, has now in a post of his own admitted that the board made mistakes. But he calls them “our mistakes, my mistakes”. And I want to make clear that these are not his mistakes. It was the boards mistakes. Chains of human errors like these are never done by one single person. You need a committee. And that, I guess, is what you can learn from this.
I also want to say that I very much appreciate Martijn Faassen and the rest of the Zope Foundations board, as friends, co-workers and developers. I did not appreciate getting kicked from the foundation, though. 😉
