After the - emotionally charged - resolution of the “Gevers-Situation” I have been tezos-offline for a while and I was wondering how things have developed in your/the community’s view?
Besides the T2-foundation founded at the beginning of this year (back then Gevers was still in power and this was a competing foundation to bypass him), there is now a new foundation, the so-called Tezos Commons Foundation (as I understand, the founder of this web forum, Jonas, is sitting on its board), TCF. I look at the tasks and aims of TCF and I think this is really great and should have been done for months. The only thing that I don’t understand: Shouldn’t these tasks be done by the original foundation given that all is fine now as Gevers has left and there is now a capable board in place that is respected and appreciated by the Tezos community?
Also, please correct me if I am wrong, Gevers has left in Feb this year, hence now activity should pick up. Is this the case? I see a new foundation taking the lead, TCF, but is the original foundation also stepping on the gas? Again, I do not have the full overview and there might be a lot of developments in the shadow/on the technical side, just publicly I don’t see much. It’s not that I expect hundreds of partnerships in a week as the reorganization certainly also takes time, but for instance, communication-wise (remember the monthly updates of August and September last year: http://www.tezos.ch/) wouldn’t it be possible to be a little bit more transparent and at least give some monthly overview of activities?
Don’t misunderstand me: the least I want is a soon go-live of XTZ, it can happen in 2020 if it’s up to me, but there are preliminary tasks to be done and it is my feeling that not much has changed since the departure of Gevers, except some breakaway groups now doing their own thing.
It would be nice to get some views…
Long live Tezos.
