1.4 Items to be disclosed from board-private

There were no items.

2.1 Resignations

Because Martin Gummi, Ulrich Schroeter and others resigned a lot of arbitration cases must be handed over, which causes a lot of work in the arbitration team. By end of the fiscal year there were 119 open cases according to the arbitration wiki page. Eva explains that usually cases are handed over with mutual agreement of all involved. There is one case where the CM (case manager) intervened. If there were no answer the DRO (dispute resolution officer) can intervene as escalation, but currently the position is vacant.

The handover is documented as part of the arbitration training.

It was decided that board asks and reminds retired arbitrators to do a proper handover of their responsibilities. The requested items are documents (e. g. emails, communication, research) and evidence. An archive of the documents is a suitable form for that. Dirk works out a draft letter together with Eva, and Piers will send it out when ready.

2.2 Old Board

The wiki page for the special report created from CAcert Inc. members after the SGM will be used as a base and place where members can contribute.

Board in person of Gero asks members to add official emails, motions and more information they might have. Information how to obtain wiki editing permission will be included (contact, and as alternative it will be offered to send information to board.

2.3 Status of Move of CAcert Inc.

Eva proposed work currently available on her wiki homepage.
