There have been answers to Michael's points and yours. And no
discussion further down this road. So, unless someone discusses
answers, states again what are the specific questions/issues are, or
how they were not answered, discussion is closed.

I'm not satisfied with how this election went, but I was not present
at the council meeting either. So there are 3 things I see needed:
 - acknowledging this election as de facto,
 - explaining how such a situation should be handled (update our constitution?),
 - an explicit, step-by-step how-to for future elections + maybe a
guide to Mageia governance.

His resignation was effective as soon as he stated it. So there's no
secretary at this time. This should be solved after next in-board
election for president, secretary and treasurer (and their aides).
