yup. But after Michael's points, I also think we might clarify and
simplify all this a great deal. In a nutshell

1) the ESC does not get to vote, it's not elected, and it's a
technical body. The AB can propose candidate(s), but cannot vote.
2) BoD appoints the CH, by vote or by consensus. People can nominate
themselves and send their nomination to the BoD no later  than 2
months before the election date. The AB can also nominate one or
several candidates and sends the name(s) to the BoD no later than 2
months before the election.

That way, it's easier and faster. Any thoughts?


Yes, I get the idea. If it's alright with you guys, I'll figure out
how to draft that in, and will give a heads-up when I've done so (over
the next 24 hours, because I'm slave to a client for the coming
hours). Is that OK?

it's more than ok, thank you again!

Also, I have an idea about a couple of legal experts I could contact
and, if they're willing, invite them to jump in on this thread and
maybe help arrive at some really bullet-proof bye-laws... should I do

Well, we do have lawyers to, for instance we have Gianluca here (but
I'm sure there are others) and also Florian Effenberger who despite any
evidence of the contrary, is not a system administrator :-)
