I hope there will be some way that *we* (the community) can influence/decide
about our faith, i.e. by choosing or voting for the new entity finally owning
the trademark.

What I would not like to see is that it is going to be some entity I have never
heard of and therefore have neither trust in nor an idea where they will
move us to.

But you may already plan to ask us for proposals.
