Update of claimant

Benedikt who filed the case as internal auditor has resigned from that post and so far there was no successor. By this it seems that the role of claimant has fallen to CAcert represented by board. Board has agreed with this point of view via motion motion m20160921.2. Benedikt did not respond when he was informed about according considerations.

Benedikt as a person is not party of this case.

Further details can be found in the history log and in FrOSCon-2016-Report a report of a session to clarify the future of a multitude of cases where the filing member had resigned but which possibly looked as cases filed in a CAcert role. The current case was one of them.

request for withdraw by new claimant

The part in the named review regarding this case reads:

2. a20140815.1 - "Attempted privacy data breach"

Link: a20140815.1

short summary of dispute:

Audit got aware of a attempted data privacy breach and abuse of supporter power (documented in i20140814.1) by attempting to look up the data related to an email address posted to the public mailing list with a support question.

further comments

when asked by Gero and Dirk, Eva revealed to them, that respondent of a20140712.1 is same as of this case (This possible relation was already named by Benedikt.)

Dirk and Gero (both: role board):

 * there now is the privacy CATS and another focus of privacy in support training
 * the supporter has left Support, no need to prosecute him further, personally
 * ask to merge into a20140712.1, as same kind of issues with same supporter 

The later points were confirmed by motion m20160921.2.

Merge Decision

If the Arbitrator of that case later sees a need for seperating both cases again, this remains to be possible. A merge only saves trouble and work for all involved persons and hopefully enables Arbitration to clarify both disputes quicker which is again in the interest of everybody involved.
