Hi there,

      Oh - wow, what is the ESC doing in that mix. I would prefer
that the board simply elect the chairman, who is just a member of the
board that has some special meeting management role :-)

      Hopefully that de-complicates the whole process; then again I
havn't read the proposal in full recently.

      I believe there is a -huge- danger of over-engineering any
- particularly when you get engineers near it :-) and ending up with
some huge joke like the OO.o governance - where obscure rules seemed
to breed in dark corners :-)

So, I'm going to rewrite the ESC part; it will at least simplify the
chairman story. But having him/her part of the BoD would also nix its
role I fear.
