the following decision, which was taken in private on 2023-11-16, is now made public in accordance with our statutes.
remove deputy chairperson role from Emiliano, reversing the vote
from our board meeting on August 8th, 2022, effective immediately
appoint László Németh as the new TDF deputy chair, effective
As advised, the board of The Document Foundation can exceptionally dismiss a (deputy) chair person and elect a new one, if there is good cause. In this case, there is fundamental disagreement and mistrust between the deputy chair, and a majority of directors.
The Board of Directors at the time of voting consists of 7 seat holders (not including deputies). In order to be quorate, the vote needs to have 1/2 or more of the Board of Directors members, which gives 4.
|Approve:||4||Ayhan, Cor, Gabor, Thorsten|
|No. of participants:||5||(Vote is quorate)|
The proposal has been accepted by simple majority, one deputy supports the motion.
PS: I’d like to personally thank Emiliano for serving in this role, during perhaps the most challenging times we ever had on the board. I do hope, that in a different, and less fast-paced setup, we can collaborate again effectively (like we did at the beginning of this term).
