A participatory process is a sequence of participatory activities (e.g. first filling out a survey, then making proposals, discussing them in face-to-face or virtual meetings, and finally prioritizing them) with the aim of defining and making a decision on a specific topic.
Examples of participatory processes are: a process of electing committee members (where candidatures are first presented, then debated and finally a candidacy is chosen), participatory budgets (where proposals are made, valued economically and voted on with the money available), a strategic planning process, the collaborative drafting of a regulation or norm, the design of an urban space or the production of a public policy plan.

TDF needs to be open to community participation in a more user friendly way. In this sense, it is clear that the use of mailing lists, IRC channels does not allow to reach the majority of LibreOffice users, free software advocates and community members and that is the adoption of this platform was proposed in the first way, to favour participation, debate, interaction and collaborative elaboration of lines of action between TDF and the community.
