Hi Stefan!

Should I put the series of postings of this kind to a temporary hold
so we can wait for your input and go into the details then? Or am I
misunderstanding something?

Well, I have gone at least into some detail by mentioning the GCC
project and its rather complex organizational structure. I find this to
be in stark contrast to your initial mail in this thread, where you describe
cooperation in very simplistic terms.

Isn't that enough to start a discussion ?

I also suggested (in a different mail, I believe) to distinguish between
'Free Software' and 'Open Source', not on ideological grounds, but to
be able to differentiate the various aspects that play a role here.

For example, Free Software as a legal framework doesn't imply any particular
Relations or Mode of Production. However, it is a requirement for Open Source
Software (as a process) to happen.

When you are talking about cooperation, using items such as 'informal',
'no fixed boundaries', etc., you seem to think of a very particular
(and in my opinion only minor) type of (small scale) OSS projects.
Most projects I'm working on are simply too big not to require
additional organizational structure.
