And anybody had the chance to express his/her opinion on the given application already. The same is true for the application of APTI, Bucarest, were we had no comments from the list or board members neither.

In the case of France at Large the staff informed us that “Unfortunately ... unable to send you the Due Dilligence form earlier because there were some inconsistencies in the application” (on 4.04.08). Our verifications brought us to the same result and therefore it was suggested to look for some clarifications first before the issue is posted on the list. I don’t see any “private” character is this procedure. And everybody, the board and you included, could have told us any further opinion on the subject.

>I see four people in your list above... well, never mind.

Actually four people from the board plus one (who prefered not being mentioned) and three staff members makes even – sorry! – eight.

Any application regarding our region was forwarded to the list (CLUSIT, APTI and France at Large) and any member ALS or board member can post a position on it. BTW I cannot enforce any discussions which are not suggested or promoted by others as well. Let's call it "shared responsibility" ;-)

Attached please find the DD form dated March 27 which was the basis of our discussions and considerations of the given case.
