2.2 Update subcommittee

Ben Dechrai is not standing as board member. Motion m20140223.3

To clarify: All members of the subcommittee are fully entitled to vote, this holds true as well for the members originally elected and the Australian successors. It is up to the successors if they vote regularly, abstain or don't vote at all.

Items 2.4 and 2.5 are discussed first and 2.3 postponed

2.4 Nominate Daniel Salcher as Organisation Assurer for Germany

Agreed unanimously. Motion m20140223.2

2.5 Prepare information to inform communtiy member about change in the software

This regards a mass mailing for CCA acceptance to all community members. In the future, all members that have not yet accepted CCA are asked to accept the CCA if they log in to their CAcert account.

Original motion "A mass mailing should be prepared as Marcus laid out but updates to the cca should be prepared and included in that mass mailing" m20140223.4 and amended from "updates" to "updates and changes" m20140223.5

Eva proposed some CCA changes which will be discussed in the policy Group.

2.3 Move CAcert Inc. to another country

Jürgen and Michael are working on the bylaws. We want to have two types of members, regular members and "donating members" or "supporting members". The German term is "Fördermitglieder" which is hard to translate directly.We can keep the CCA with minor changes. We as well can keep the DRP for the community members with minor changes. Maybe we have to create a sort of DRP for association members, which in nearly all cases relies to the community DRP.

For the bylaws and DRP German is the binding language, for other policies and the like English can be the binding language. But we will do our best to create good translations, so in nearly all cases both version can be regarded equivalent.

3 Questions

No questions.
