Good observation Ish, I have the impression that some are on a mission to
block the PDP, and that the Board is not helping the situation by evading
its responsibilities. It is time for the Board to realize that the system
is blocked and that it needs to be unblocked.

The recent complaints about the AC’s practices and decisions and the
resignation of 2 of the 3 community elected members, represente serious
matters which the board should have addressed prompted and efficiently.

I invite the new Co-chairs to continue their work, animation and
management of the PDP.


Bonne observation Ish, j'ai comme l'impression certains sont en mission
pour bloquer le PDP, et que le Board n'aide pas à résoudre les problèmes en
fuyant ses responsabilités. Il est temps que le Board se rende compte que
le système est bloqué et qu'il faille le débloquer.

Les récentes plaintes concernant les pratiques et décisions du CA et la
démission de 2 des 3 membres élus de la communauté, représentent des
questions graves que le conseil aurait dû traiter avec promptitude et

J'invite aussi les nouveaux Co-chairs à continuer leur travail, d'animation
et de gestion de notre PDP.
