dear Ivica,

i agree to not vote on any member joining, still i think it is fair to
give the possibility to a member of the board to propose a voting in
case of justified doubts.

despite your reiterated denigration of my positions i still believe to
have properly explained and justified my doubts about the pertinence of
Ubuntu being part of our consortium.

now i'm just looking forward to hear other members opinions.

thanks in advance for your respect and fairness,
