You cannot be paid for BoD duties, but you can be paid for other duties, if the organization can 
hire someone.  

We need someone for almost full time infrastructure administration, which is not a BoD duty.

This has been thoroughly checked by lawyers, and is compliant with German laws.

Most free software foundation have a paid professional to handle duties such as infrastructure and 
administration, and we have now reached the stage where we need this kind of support.

Best, Italo

I am just curious about this. In Canada, I believe a member of any  
non-profit BoD is not allowed to be hired nor be paid any "work" related  
Is this different in German law? It seems to be that way.
