Id like to propose to the board (all in To:) to extend the number of
directors from 7 to 9. Ideally by letting people vote on 7 vs 9.
I propose this because i feel kicking 2 of 9 candidates out is
disrespectfull to them and would only increase hostility without
any advantage.

The reason for this late proposal is because i did not know there
where just 9 candidates until recently and because i tried
to mail that suggestion to the election ML unsuccessfully.

If my proposal isnt accepted i immedeatly resign as director
and withdraw my candidacy from the foundation. I dont want to be
part of this vote of "who are the 2 most hated developers" in any way.
