Can you introduce a a "neutral" 3rd party to us ? The "one selling
T-shirt (free software) community"?
I don't have any in my address book. It's something we as a community
need to look into. What I am saying is that selecting a member of our
community to sell t-shirt is a dangerous path, or the community decides
to handle the shop themselves. But it should be a carefully thought out
For the other community I'm talking about, I'd prefer not to be
associated with them in any way. They seem more focused on selling their
t-shirts that promoting free software or whatever they're supposed to
promote. @ Blug we call "them" the T-shirt salesman.... I have yet to
see any passion in Free and Open Source from that individual and really
think that to be associated or compared with his behavior would reflect
very badly on our community. -> which is why it's probably best to
select a "neutral seller".
I think we have time, it's not like we NEED to sell stuff tomorrow and
have no other choice.
We are happy to work with other organization as long as it make things
We already have "one selling T-shirt (free software) community" in
Beijing, do you want to be the 2nd one?
