1. Jan Iversen moving from contractor to volunteer end-March
During FOSDEM, the board met privately with Jan Iversen, whose company
is contracted for mentoring services, to discuss the delivery of those
services to TDF. It was mutually and cordially agreed to transition Jan
to a volunteer role over several months.
The board including deputies therefore have unanimously agreed to
terminate the commercial service contract with Jan Iversen's company,
effective March 31, 2017.
Since this contractual matter is now concluded, the board agreed today
to make it public. TDF would like to thank Jan for the services carried out.
