Re: [Debconf-team] DebConf 15 Legal Entity

I added all my feedback via Git so jftr: I am quite happy with the state we reached by now.

If this is what we want… sounds fine to me, even though it means

agree. However, we cannot guard against all malice anyway.

We could add a safeguard that there's a grace period of two weeks after such a decision. If more than 50% of active/honorary members object, in writing, within that time, the decision is reversed.

This is a corner case, though.

The only other thing I see as of right now is that extraordinary votes go through the board or a board-designated proxy. I would prefer to have that run through someone external, like the Debian secretary, to avoid potential abuse by the board. Also a corner case, but slightly more realistic, imo. And I say that as someone who intends to run for board (unless there's already a strong candidate pool for the board, I guess). Also see da569cf00705df82ade627d1bcb793d49f75a8d6 in Git.
Text like "einer den Mitgliedern des Vereins vertrauenswuerdigen Person" might fit the bill, here.

Again, I am very happy with our current state,
mainly thanks to madduck for driving this,
