There was this Online Desktop Question which a few of the GNOME Foundation members expressed surprise (and dismay) at. Bryan does a nice summary of it. Though the question is about the Online Desktop, in my mind it’s really about a shift in direction and technology and really tests to see that Board members are open to those shifts. It’s the responsibility of the Board members to understand the new technologies and try to enable the people working in that direction where reasonable and prudent for the Foundation to do so.
