Sorry, but there was long and intensive discussion on the specific topic
prior to the resolutions being proposed, likely more than any other
issue that has been put to a membership vote in modern OSMF times.
Naturally the issue was controversial, but I think it is fair to say
that would have only been avoidable if the resolution had contained a
clause that it would not apply to any past, current and future board
