I am really tired of these accusations. At the time that this motion was voted on, there had not been this hue and cry about voting on IAEP. There was no deliberate attempt for the votes to be made secretly behind the backs of the members. Why can you not accept that some of the votes were not made to the IAEP mailing list in error.

I copied the text of the emails. What more can you possibly want. A sworn affidavit? For God's sake this motion was made at the request of the Conservancy when the item was in the limit of petty cash.

Please provide me with 7 links to 7 emails on a public mailing list

Would you be willing to do this?
Thanks for taking the time to do attempt this :)

So, 4 of the votes were posted in private and you got them because you
are on the SLOB list; only 3 were public, and while you didn't provide
links that I can add to the Decisions page, I'll take your word for it

Previous on this thread you said:

- "I believe the actions of the board have been clear and made in public."

- "I don't remember anything private in those votes."

- "I am certainly not aware of any motion made by a member of the
Board which has not been handled entirely in public."

Given that 4 of the votes were posted in private, then I say those
statements are kindly mistaken.

Rather, I would say:

- the actions of the board have been clearly summarised (thank you
Walter) but not made in public

- you have now reported the votes for one motion not made in public

- that motion was therefore not handled entirely in public

I think members should be able to keep their comments private.
I agree - I said earlier, "As you know I have engaged the SLOBs list
privately over legally sensitive trademark matters, which I hope
demonstrates that I understand and agree with the need for a private
board discussion forum."

I'll try to look at the others, but I don't have more time at the moment.
Please don't worry about it - it is clear that providing the
membership with 7 links to 7 emails on a public mailing list for each
motion is impossible, until the board passes a motion requiring votes
to be emailed to the IAEP and SLOB lists in order to be counted as

As a SLOB member, would you be willing to post such a motion to
improve the operation of the project?
