SSAC and RSSAC have 10 votes out of 35, they could jointly block a Board
recall (75% votes required, 27 votes). Since they are both composed of
individuals appointed by the Board, some may question their independence in
case such a power is triggered. This could raise concerns of conflicts of

the same effect as a vote against (as discussed on the call yesterday) then
they will be certain to block recall,
SO: I think it may be good to distinct the type of abstentions; Abstention
of participating SO/AC would be different from Abstention of
non-participating SO/AC. I expect the later will not affect/impact the
votes in any way.

since these two organisations have made it abundantly clear that they do
not wish to vote, do not consider it appropriate to their mandate, and have
no intention of doing so under any circumstances.
SO: Well that could be a view of the present but the proposal we are
developing now is for the future. One of the duo did formerly join this
working group recently (which I think was a good thing) even though there
were indication of not joining at the earlier stage of this process. So
things can change and those stress tests needs to be done and sufficiently
catered for in the ccwg report/proposal
