Foundation: Concerns

Peter Lamont has stated this regarding my previous two years work within the Mambo community:
The foundation would like to build a community of people who are concerned about Mambo, yet you are only concerned about the foundation - that's the problem you face.

This means the new Core team, 3PD, QA, Advocacy, and Moderation teams are all at risk of being accused of the same thing as what I quote above when they chose to disagree with the Board's direction.
