based on an offlist discussion, I hereby propose the board to vote on
changing the rules of procedure.
§ 3, the internal delegation of responsibilites, should be adapted.
Andreas Mantke, so far listed for "contracts, taxes, legal
compliance, trademarks and brands", currently lacks time for this
area, and therefore wants to be removed from this particular item.
I personally would like to thank him for his hard and good work on
this topic, which - knowing from my own experiences - can be quite
tedious and hard at times.
So far, no other takers have shown up, so unless one board member or
deputy shows up in this thread and takes over responsibility, the
proposal is to rephrase § 3 as follows:
§3. Internal delegation of responsibilities - Internally, the board
has decided on the following split of responsibilities:
