Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Ah. Thanks. I think I see where the issue is now?

My understanding was that GA was MCeV members that were not specifically officers. If GA is some super-set of members and non-members, then...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

OK, I'm apparently confused. And if I'm confused or misinformed about this while trying to follow it, imagine how confused others are. Don't forget that most of this info is in German, which many...

Thank you for this rather concise wording and moving this forward. Yes, changing Council rules requires a referendum; Full stop. Said referendum is well overdue since many things still point at...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

I'm saying anyone who blindly takes on legal liability, while giving over the right to control that liability, is not someone you want in the role of Board member.

Board != Parliament. The Board...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

There-in lies the root of the problem. Just as Watts=Volts*Amps, Power = Choice/Liability. To have separation of (or sharing of) power, one must also have separation/sharing of liability. That...

Re: Nominations for Council election Q4 2014

Repeatedly. Council and HiFo proposed at least 6 different ways of doing this at different times throughout the negotiations. Each time the answer was pretty much the same: They could not and...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

To be clear: I was in the process of resigning when this issue came up. I was on IRC daily, and in regular contact with you, the Board, and the rest of tech staff. Your interpretation of the events...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Not quite true. If there were an overwhelming desire for HiFo to remain, there is a way to make that happen. It would be very inefficient, and eat about half the funding we have, and would require...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

One quick note: There's a reason that most of these questions have not been answered. In particular, as has been eluded to several times, it's often a fact that negotiations with a company must not...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Those were the official election results. Over 5,000 ballots went out (it was 5,600-ish the last one I pulled the trigger on). There were no site outages during the election. There was a banner up...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

The answer is what it is. I did not trust those acting on behalf of HiFo (mainly YOU, as Tech Staff). As a result, I foresaw there could be legal repercussions, which I would wind up being the...

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Re: [RFC] On the roles of Maemo Council and Maemo e.V.

Understand, in most countries "real non-profits" are in fact corporations. This is the case in most of the English speaking world.
