Just for the record. Having a German e.V. is the result of the boards
discussions. The argumentation for this is that the majority of
contributors to our project is German (European).
So is this something we can count
as "decided" now?
Very good decision. That makes everything easy. As a former member of
board of the KDE e.V. I can tell from experience that a german e.V. is
very easy to operate as there is the german "Vereinsgesetzt" which
rules out a useful frame of operandi. And, which is more important,
there are people like lawyers and tax consultants who deal with that
every day and help. That makes it easy for the people who take responsibility
within the organisation.
For example all the discussion around "how we do finances" is going away
with that because its law that an e.V. needs to have an treasurer who
is responsible for the finances. Usually she/he does a little accounting
and works together with a tax consultant to prepare the anual report
which has to be approved by the membership, after it was checked by
a few members of the membership on its correctness.
All that is law, so nothing to be thought over by us here :-)
