Hey folks :)

We really need to wrap this up now. We need the data and we need the
policy in place. It's holding us back from learning more about our
users and making our software better. That's not good.

This would be the ideal way forward and the right thing to do.

As sebas said this is bad communication-wise. But if Kexi can't or
doesn't want to comply that's the next best option.

I don't believe this is an option that's in line with our vision.

I don't think that's an acceptable option either because we need to
get a better understanding of how our software is used in order to
make it better.

Jaroslav: I think you need to make a choice now for Kexi. We can't let
it sit and hope it goes away ;-)
