Dear arbitrator As the secretary of CAcert Inc. I represent in this case the committee of this association and ask you for your support to fullfill a board motion to bring CAcert Inc in accordance with the statutes, as 3.1 "(c) Nominee must not be an employee of, or contracted to, either a Certificate Authority which provides digital certification or identification services or digital signing services for financial reward, or an organisation which is employed by or contracted to a Certificate Authority which provides digital certification or identification services or digital signing services for financial reward. (d) Failure to adhere with clause (c) results in expulsion from the association at any time." The committee is of the opinion that former CAcert members, who are now building up a competing CA in Austria, are not formally employees of the latter, but at least de facto fall under these paragraphs of the statutes of CAcert Inc.. There is no need to notify people that are no more active in the community or even left it or are now working for another CA are notified about changes in the wiki. For this reason, the committee moved on its meeting on March 21st, 2019 "that the wiki admin is authorised and instructed to remove the notifications sent to people no longer active at CAcert." by 3yes, 0 no, 0 abst. As the wiki belongs to the community and not to the association, the committee cannot advice the wiki admin to do so, that is the reason, as I ask the arbitrator to do so. I was told by the Wiki admin that he can't remove individual people, only all of them. The function seems to be quite old and the people who are notified have not been active for many years, even though some of them are still members of the community. Therefore it seems to me in coordination with the Wiki Admin appropriate to have all notifications removed. Demand: that the wiki admin is authorised and instructed to remove the notifications sent.
