Even more? Have you resolved all earlier reported issues already? :)
Seriously, I was under the impression that the makeup of the newly
proposed board was part of the bylaws. I have given feedback on the text
of that, which I hope you will consider for revision. In particular, the
bylaws currently suggest that the board should have three appointed
members with a minority number of seats for independent candidates. I
propose you change that to something more in line with the previous
bylaws which at least made sure there was a majority of independent
seats. And ideally it doesn't have any non-democratic seats.
