The above preliminary results are in conflict with § 8 IV of our

Miklos and Jona having the same affiliation. The elected candidates and

and the general public on this soon.

I talked to Jona and in case we're asked about what is our preference: I
propose me stepping down in favor of her (and me initially

A concern is now that Stephan and me would finish work in the committee,
noone remains with stronger technical skills, when it comes to
recovering from odd situations with git, gerrit, etc. To cover that, I
plan to stick around (initially) so Jona (or another MC member) is
trained up and doing this -- again, if this kind of help is requested by
the new MC.

Wherever the rule of "no two members of MC with same affiliation" was
stated (can't find it either in the above-linked PDF nor in the HTML
version at <>
now), does that extend to MC deputies, too?  If not, one solution to
the "no technicians in the MC" issue could be that Miklos only steps
down to deputy level.

the rule is, that only one third of the members of a TDF body had to
have the same affiliation (§ 8 IV S. 2 of the statutes): if there are
five members in a body, two of them would be more than one third.

The deputies of the MC are not elected members of the MC and thus the
one third rule is not valid for them (as long as they are deputies).
Once they replace a MC member (possible only after her/his retirement)
the rule applies to the then new member of the MC too.

If an elected member doesn't accept his role, she/he is completely out.
You could not step some positions back (to get deputy).
