thank you. I know that.

But as you know there were some behaviors from key TDF members which
throw me out of the project. I worked only voluntary and since Feb. 2018
as pure volunteer.
I enjoyed the view on TDF from a pure volunteer since then with all
features ;-)
And I got a more balanced view (different from the view from the inner
circle).

In some cases it's a bit of humor (not common for Germans?).

It's always fine to have volunteers which stand for running the
governance. But I'm a fan of real and wide spread diversity among them.
If you have a look into the statutes of TDF
and the spirit between the lines you will see this as the DNA of the
foundation.
From my current perspective I would change ยง 8 IV S. 2 of the statutes
from 'one third of the members' to 'one member'. But this is only my own
opinion.

Yes and I got more time for spare time activities others than reading
emails, coding and server / website administration ;-)

And I had also to spend a lot of energy to get into new topics of my
payed job.

Kind regards,
Andreas
