Community could be defined as a group of people sharing common 
interests and goals.  There are supposed to be Board and Council 
elections.  Up to now there has only been three persons commenting 
about the XSF:

  1. Dave Cridland
  2. Peter Waher
  3. Laura Gill

It would be good that, at the very least, the other candidates join 
the conversation by sharing their views and participate in the 
discussions.  Otherwise, it may seem that there isn't the interest to 
find common goals.

 From http://xmpp.org/about-xmpp/xsf/xsf-people/ I see that Peter 
Saint Andre is the Executive Director and XMPP Extensions Editor.  If 
Alexander Gnauck had not stepped forward Peter would also have been 
XSF Secretary.  In my opinion it would be better if other persons 
stepped forward to share the workload.

I believe that federation starts within.  I don't see how to convince 
people that the XSF can help others communicate when there isn't much 
communication within.  There has been very little feedback from XSF 
members.  It is doubtful that a majority of XSF members are on 
vacation as it is not summer in all parts of the world. :-)
