Hi Fatima,
Thanks for your email!

...can i tell you that all your three issues have been already addressed?

Then, there is no new issue below...

...who is disqualifying who?

There are criteria and you are free to do
the comparison against each candidate's
profil. If you reach to a different conclusion
then come back with evidence of your
claim...that is how rough consensus
works...unless you should also consider
this issue as already addressed more
than twice; by various participants...

...please see here:

...also already addressed more than
twice, but if you are not satisfied; please
make more effort to convince the PDWG :-/ seems as you want an *election*; the PDP allows the PDWG to use any
kind of *selection* method. Finaly rough consensus becomes the consensual
*selection* method adopted openly onlist (RPD). It seems as you are
opposing this transparent process :-/

...again, the context [1] is important :'-(
