2.1 AGM preparations
The current issue is the fact that the financial report is not yet finished. Mark is key here, but will not be vailable for another few weeks. In the mean time Ian will work on getting access to the bank account as a second person.
2.2 Ruling of a20100212.2
Issue at hand is: Ruling a20100212.2 addresses a case where a CAcert member is deceased. The ruling states that all R/L/O (Responsibilities / Liabilities / Obligations) of the deceased member return to the community (=CAcert). This was discussed during the meeting and the general consensus was that although we don't expect an issue in this particular case, we think this ruling is incorrect and should not be used as reference in future rulings, The main issue is that the receiving party (CAcert) was in no way involved in any contract or agreement of the deceased member, and therefore cannot be forced to accept all R/L/O. Another issue is that CAcert was not represented at the arbitration.
This however represents a problem: once we protest (challenge the ruling), the case will be handled by the board (Appeal as of 3.4 DRP http://www.cacert.org/policy/DisputeResolutionPolicy.php). This would be incorrect since the board is party in the dispute.
We therefore propose to
ask the arbitrator that reopens the case to handle the appeal https://community.cacert.org/board/motions.php?motion=m20101212.1
ask for appeal in case a20100212.2 https://community.cacert.org/board/motions.php?motion=m20101212.2
- ask the policy group to amend the current appeal policy, so that this type of conflict will be avoided in the future
