A comment that may be useful.
I think that everyone has a need and a jury tool can fit some needs more
than another... so the jury tool may be more than one.
The approaches are two:
a) someone select the "official jury tool" but the community can be a lot
b) the jury tool is something personal like a tool developed in Toolserver
and he/she promotes his/her own tool and the community has several options
Personally I like the option b because it's really hard that a tool can fit
the needs of all countries.
The IEG may support one or two Jury tools, what is important is to clarify
why the IEG must finance them.
So, instead of killing the jury tool of the competitor, using the vision to
have only one but poorly developed cause the long fight, I suggest to look
for financial support, to propose several tools and to have the community
choosing the most appropriated.
This is how the information technology should work: the user is the main
objective of the information technology, to be selected by the users
select, this is the best result.
