Hello, the elections for the next TDF Board of Directors has been started one and a half week ago. The decision on the list of members that have a vote in this election has been done by the membership committee in its current composition. The announcement of the elections was done by the current chair of the membership committee.
I took not that he nominates himself for the upcoming elections yet, that he and the MC has to run and oversee. First: I have no personal issue with him or other members or supporters of LibreOffice! Second: I'm not used to a procedure in elections where a candidate is also the one or part of the group that run and/or oversee the elections (and/or the entitlement to vote) and I've taken part in elections of different organizations in the past (smaller and bigger organizations). And in my opinion a process with a clear separation between 'election committee' and candidates would be in the best interest of TDF and was also the perception of the TDF founder (Freies Office Deutschland e.V.). If the founder would have had another perception, the current regulation with the MC running the elections for the board and the board running the elections for the MC wouldn't make that much sense. Third: I already shared this view with all involved people internal during the last weeks. My take on this didn't change during the last two years. Fourth: I'm also no fan of stepping down during the period of duty to get the position inside another body.
