I consider that contributions to COOL, should not taken into consideration for TDF membership.

Hi Guilhem,

thanks for your differentiated view! And let me stress again at least from my side, this is a 
temporary freeze, meanwhile to engage for new or old code contributors, so that we are able to 
have or to maintain at least a "secure" code base for TDFs LOOL.

I already have started some activities for this purpose (as it is also an independent issue from 
frozen or not) and I urge everybody to help here (board, team, members, community, others) to 
meet this temporary period, so yes from my side, this is the plan in my pov.

Thanks again, Guilhem, all the best,

Hi Florian,

Result of vote: 3 approvals, 3 disapprovals, 1 abstain.
One deputy approves, one deputy disapproves.

As the vote is a tied vote, § 9 IV of the statutes come to effect. The
Chairperson has the deciding vote, and voted +1 to the proposal.

Decision: The request has been accepted.
This message is to be archived by the BoD members and their deputies.

AFAICT this outcome stems from the fact there it was a yes/no type of
vote, so yays “for a short-term period” (quoting Lothar, but there were
other BoD members with that understanding) were counted alongside
enthusiastic yays.

Given the short-term period isn't binding, in practice the vote might be
interpreted as a definitive +1.  Could the BoD clarify the short-term
period and maybe even commit to revisit the vote say, before the end of
their term?
