:-/ reason I asked is im most likely goign to be looking for a job in may
and the Maltese sadly have very wrong mentality in terms of hiring those
people freshly graduated. here they only want people with experience.

The BoD has already evaluated all scenarios, and the solution of hiring
Florian Effenberger to handle duties such as infrastructure manager and
administrative officer is the best we could possibly find.

Because of some administrative tasks with German authorities, you should
be fluent in German and knowledgeable about German law, in addition to
being a German citizen living in Germany (this simplifies a large number of
tasks and interactions with authorities).

Italo i would take that offer as full time job as infrastructure admin :)
question is would that require me to relocate to germany or could I work
from here in malta?

 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

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

Request: authorize Thorsten Behrens to hire Florian Effenberger as a
part-time employee of TDF for non-board related tasks (e.g.
infrastructure work), for up to a year, and at a cost not exceeding
EUR 37k per annum.

Result of vote: 6 approvals, 1 neutral, 0 disapprovals

Decision: the request has been approved.

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.
