mention this in 2014; the transition is what we are doing, so we have to be
specific on what we require as a feature, what the legal team should do is
merely wording of the contract to meet our feature requirement. It is NOT
the role of legal team determine duration of contract, neither are they to
determine termination conditions. That is the role of the community and
it's our call in this process.

I think there may be a difference in the 2 scenario as periodic renewal
will mean initiating a process at the end of each fixed term(which could
require some level of resources). As you have rightly mentioned above,
providing termination conditions on the basis of SLA is what is most
important, so an indefinite term similar to the MOU that established ASO
would not reduce the strength of the agreement but could save us some
