Dear Board members,

according to the current draft of the foundation's legal statutes (as
proposed to the German authorities), the foundation's board shall elect
a chairperson and the chairperson's deputy among the board's members.

In short - these will be the primary legal representatives of the
foundation. While having no special power, legal contracts need to be
signed by one of the board members together with either the chairperson
or it's deputy. ( Beyond that, the board can decide to give procuration
to individual board members.)

As we are going to file the papers really soon, I'd ask the board
members to elect

    Florian Effenberger  as chairman of the board
   Thorsten Behrens as his deputy.

During the board elections Florian and Thorsten were the candidates who
reached the highest vote rank. Florian is for sure one of our most
active members doing great work in marketing, is coordinating our admin
team and did lots of preparations for the legal setup of the foundation.
Thorsten is well known and accepted among developers (and not only there
;) ), and also helped a lot preparing the legal setup of the foundation.

I think, my suggestions in the interest of the board members and all our
TDF members.
(If not, time to object is right now ;) )

Thanks and regards,
