this is now interfering with a discussion you already had with Wolf and
the others yesterday on this very same list. There was some opposition
and further remarks. So iterating the arguments doesn't get us anywhere.

Instead, the board meet yesterday and decided (the minutes are currently
being prepared, so please give Silvia some time to finish that first
before she comes back to the minutes of the GA) to go another way. This
statement will be removed because it has indeed not being said that way
but another statement will be added that the election has been contested
right after the GA, so the result is incompatible with the bylaws.

That was a false (too quick) update of that page by Silvia, not aware of
the problems which have occured as she was not present in Lisbon. This
might have to be corrected, based on the outcome of the current vote.

Feel free to remove that statement.

That decision has been communicated internally (within the board),
Olivier has sent two mails to Wolf on behalf of Oliver Passek, Jordi
Iparraguirre, Stefan Hügel, him and me who sat together at Friday
morning to the review together, Yrjö has communicated his opinion on
2013-06-22 on this mailing list.

As the outcomes were unanimous across everyone who participated I am
sure that your own review will lead to the same result. Just have a look at
Relevant article is 11.20.

There are a few more findings in how we could improve the board
composition and work in the future but those are not urgent - there is
no incompatibility with what we do today and the bylaws except for the
secretariat election. So we want to fix the urgent issue now to finally
have a complete and working board, then we will take the time and come
back later to improve.

But please, let us get over this issue now. It is tense for everyone and
I assume especially for those in the center of this conflict, you, Yulja
and Wolf.
