As a member of the TEI community (not a developer, or an editor: a
simple user and teacher of TEI technologies) I wholeheartedly agree with
Elena, Gabriel and Sebastian. I have been following the evolution and
growth of the community for quite some time now, and this is the worst
crisis I ever had a chance to see. John Unsworth has my gratitude and
trust to take hold and chair the TEI Board, but we can't just go ahead
pretending nothing has happened; at the very least, if there are
procedural problems with the current Bylaws/Board functioning they have
to be fixed, and that can't happen if we just turn our back to the
recent past.
