Hi all,I have to admit that I haven't checked the vote totals when published internally and only now I realise that the totals are wrong.
While I notified the board that in my opinion the expenditure is unnecessary as we have the relevant resources, communication expert and a CoC team, within TDF I've voted -1. A member of the board made me noticed that I might be in conflict of interest as the proposed expenditure is, for the best part, related to my complaint that the case was not handled with the due impartiality and objectivity, I agreed with the comment and I revoked my vote.
The final vote should be: A total of 6 Board of Directors members have participated in the vote. The vote is quorate. A quorum could be reached with a simple majority of 4 votes. Result of vote: 5 approvals, 0 abstains, 1 disapprovals. Also one deputy supports the motionThe result doesn't change as the majority of the board think that we should spend a large amount of money for something that could have been solved months ago with our own resources and without this expenditure but I believe it's important to remove my vote from this decision.
