I'd like to. But things I do not like at all is negative thinking up 
front. It feels like the destiny of some people lies in finding 
something to grouse about - esp. if either the board of PPI or some 
German (speaking) person is at the other end. Think about 
"sender-->receiver" meaning the difference between the information given 
and received. Plus the experience from some people (not from countries) 
who are eager to transport the false idea that PPI is euro-centric or 
even worse. (in a way it is, considering the sum of members, and think 
about the history of the pirate movements.)

First of all you assume I hate you. As I have never met you - there is 
neither hatred nor something else. How could I as there is no reason for it.

Any help is appreciated! As you have the same "advantage" of not 
attending the GA in Kazan (only by remote) you are as capable as me or 
others. Plus I believe you carry a 24-7 thinking. (All others do not 
know how to do it, they are incapable of doing anything right asf.

So you do have the same information like I do. Ask Patrick Mächler - he 
took the minutes. As neither the board nor I do not know where he is atm 
(he could be on his way home, still staying in Kazan or somewhere else. 
As he collected these information ... no need to end the sentence :)

True, this can be done the moment the necessary information are 
available. Patience is a virtue.

I know. So we do have exactly the same information. As mentioned above: 
wait for Patrick.

Not for me, If I'd have the information, I'd be eager to share them.

Although being dead tired I will not omit a formal greeting
