Further down the resolution, which you snipped:
---- snip ----
Following informal discussions of Associated Project status with members
of the community, if satisfied the SPI Board will pass a resolution
inviting the project to become Associated with SPI.

This resolution will state the SPI Board's current understanding of who
is authorised to act for the project; it will invite the project to join
with SPI according to this Framework; and it will state a date at which
the invitation will lapse if not accepted.
---- snip ----

The DPL being advisor to the board is a seperate issue to them acting as
as the authorised decision maker.
