Dear Tobias and Membership Committee,
The board has concerns that the current elections are being ran (or at least announced) by one of the candidates in this election. Even though we trust Tobias and we appreciate his work, the current situation presents a conflict of interest that could be challenged. In order to warranty the transparency, we kindly request the Membership and Election Committee to address this concern. We suggests Tobias to abstain of participating actively in this election process as member of the Membership and Election Committee until the results were made public. However, you might have a better approach in mind or a different opinion, in case whose we would be interested to know. We hope you understand our concerns.
From what I see and as you pointed out Tobias prepared (published the pages at vote.g.o, sent the ballots) the relevant infrastructure to allow the elections to take place since he has the needed accesses to modify the Foundation DB. (that kind of access is restricted to me and Tobias for security reasons) That said, I'll take care of the remaining bureaucracy from now on. (i.e checking results, publishing results, announcing the winners etc.) cheers, Andrea
