Hi Michael, Andreas, * letting the rest of the discussion stand for the moment - this much: Michael Meeks wrote:
Having said that - in general, it is clearly better for most of the MC to serve a full term so we have continuity in the MC. FWIW - I was rather in favor of 1 year terms for both BoD & MC in the 1st instance which would make this rather less of a problem (IMHO).
There's a technical problem here, in that board and MC run each other's election - so you cannot have them elected both at the same time I guess. Which in turn means there's always the issue of people wanting to stand for the other body, to not be able to serve their full term - regardless of term lengths. I don't personally consider people from the MC standing for the board to be a large issue - if this is not becoming a habit. Since there's a hard problem for TDF, at the very least, should the size of the MC shrink below the required number of officers (which is 3, as per https://www.documentfoundation.org/statutes.pdf §12, 3). Beyond that, I agree with what you say Michael. Having significant brain drain from the MC might affect how well we can attract new members, and also perhaps how much time and energy we invest in reviewing applications. All the best, -- Thorsten
