Yes, no -- it depends on your POV.
My very personal POV is, if a public project is finished it's in the
public interest to publish _all_ source like data (including the
environmental things like processing tools). Since the TEI is funded
by public money (right?), I'd say the TEI is a public project; at least,
public resources are used to keep the TEI running (a good thing, of
It's also dubious to make such a fuss about the .pdf file as a whole.
Note, I'd happily buy a printed copy of TEI P4 if nicely bound and
priced fairly etc. pp. (in the past I bought the green books, in case
that matters). I'm not willing to spend money for a .pdf file produced
by university members--universities are funded by public money and I
don't want to pay twice.
My very personal POV, as said above.
PS. I'm curious: Who are the members of the Board?
http://www.tei-c.org/Consortium/TEI-TEI-C.html#TEI-board -- thus "us"
and the "Board" members are overlapping entities.
PPS. Many projects located at German universities are even worse.
