We can discuss that for the next round; maybe there are better solutions / proposals.

My question is only, why we open up the discussion now (and not after the voting).
The BoD had discussed the topic and decided about it in public. Everyone had the
oportunity to bring up his arguments before the decision.

I do share this. While I totally agree that there are many valid views on that topic, discussing that now, after the public BoD confcall, and the public discussion on this list, is a bit strange. It feels like the whole discussion we had done is totally senseless, since we now open the discussion again. Most of us are volunteers, and rediscussing things again and again burns a lot of time...

So, my proposal would indeed be to stick what we had decided (we all, since everyone had a chance to join the discussion and the call), and discuss options for 2013, where we can change the model, of course.

I meant the job for the receiver of the mails (Florian?). I won't volunteer for the
job to read all of this mails, decide to give the voting rights and put the mail-
writer into a list or the environment for voting. That's a really nice job and the
proposal should also contain the proposal for volunteering for the job ;-)

Exactly. Receiving mails, verifying they are not fraud, writing back that how those people can vote, adding them to the voting system, it is a lot of work, and I surely can't do it. And don't forget, we run out of time, people have to vote soon, so the organizers can start preparing...
