@Board
Did you consult the working group being involved in boundary disputes
(DWG and LWG) before you came to that decision?

How does your decision comply with the on-the-ground rule?

Could you please share the original complaint with redacted names or a
summary of it and its arguments?

How many board members agreed, how many disagreed?

Did any board member not participate in the voting due to a conflict of
interest? Did these members participate in the decision making?

Best regards

Michael
