Having been active for quite sometime now I have noticed that the FSF-I
leadership does not bother to give either organisational or political or any
guidance despite numerous requests from the community. I do not know if this
is due to ignorance or because they do not want to.

Of course, most of the people on the work group have been inactive over a
long period of time and need to be replaced by more active members.

It does give rise to suspicion whether the members have not been changed
just to ensure that a few remain in power.

2. The members of the FSF-I and a few others throw accusations against teams

This is not entirely true. On the Board we have Kiran who's team is known to
be doing a lot of ground work in AP. I am not sure about the others'
involvement in ground work though they do do a lot of other things...

More than a CPIM takeover I am worried about FSF-I rotting to death due to
