Point well taken. OTOH, Linux, and subsequently Lao is also about community.

I am not trying to "force" anything. I merely suggested this to see what the
community feels like. Linuxaudio.org never coerced anyone or anything to do
contrary to what they believe in and this is not going to change (at least
not under my watch). So, if you and/or others in the consortium feel this
way, so be it.
There is still a possibility that even under such circumstances we could
develop a theme/style framework which would be offered to subdomains to
adopt if they so desired (or wanted to have such a resource at their
disposal for the sake of easier website deployment), but this will not be
required... In other words, you need not worry about a hostile takeover or
any other move reminiscent of corporate backstabbing.
