And I would argue that based on what has been said below – even if it is still in the bylaws it be ignored since from Ashok’s statement it is in fact not in line with the law.  So we remove it to sync with the law – but the limitation does not hold at the next meeting either in my view.

    Actually, you replied to the mailing list, but no harm done.  I am also replying to the mailing list, and I have asked for the mailing list configuration to be changed so that it does not automatically add a “Reply-To” header in future.

    Thank you for the advice.  I suggest that the limit on pnumber of proxies should be removed.
