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).

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

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.
