Re: [LiS-styret] Re: Commercial involvement of SLX Debian Labs in Debian Edu market
Noen spørsmål (på norsk):
Som jeg forstår er kjernen i denne diskusjonen en kontrakt mellom SLX
D.L. (for "oppstartshjelp" og tredjelinje support) og firma X (som
kompetanseleverandør mot sluttkunde).
Skal SLX D.L. tilby (i dette tilfellet selge) slike tjenester? Burde
ikke det vært overlatt til rent kommersielle foretak? (Linuxlabs, FAJ
m.fl. er da i stand til å levere slik support...)
Dersom SLX D.L. skal selge slike tjenester (dvs operere som kommersiell
tjenesteleverandør), burde ikke da alle avtaler baseres på åpne,
ufravikelige standard-kontrakter (level playing ground)?
Personlig tror jeg ikke det er sunt om SLX D.L. opererer som kommersiell
tjenesteleverandør, hvor de nødvendigvis vil komme i konkurranse med
andre som leverer slike tjenester (LL, FAJ, m.fl) og samtidig bidrar
sterkt til prosjektet. Jeg ser en stor fare for at SLX D.L. skyter seg
selv i foten her. Men det er min mening...
Hva er/blir SLX D.L. politikk på dette området?
