Accepted, but we need to improve dicussions.
When voting, please say "yes" or "no", and if "yes", from which month it should go now: starting March (since we did not raise this topic earlier only due to delay in funding) , or starting April.

I agree on the principle, but there are things that must be done for regular pay.

There's ways to circumvent the VAT number problem (e.g. OMV pays Lindev, Lindev pays TPG the same amount).
At least as far as .ch is concerned, there is no VAT on services provided outside the country.

TPG is doing a fine job, so no double thoughts about the decision. But I agree with Raph's free time comment.

I'm going to vote no. Not because I have anything against TPG, but because we need to have clear direction in what we are doing and where we are going, and not be so quick to throw out a vote without first having a full discussion.

@raphaeljadot I suggest to discuss technical details out of public, directly with TPG

@waynesallee please initiate an email on council mailing list with all your concerns, it's important to get clear on all this.

We need to try to have better clarity in what we are voting for. And the voting has in my opinion been coming a bit to quick to not allow discussion, and decision on what we want to vote on.

@waynesallee full discussion on this issue with full description of services etc happened in october last year in council ML. Feel free to take it up.
Currently only the continuation is on the table

I understand the reticence of Wayne. We should have first adopt some rules for discussion. And first of all: what do we need? Only after we will be able to decide for what we agree to pay.
This said, we have a problem to resolve:
-- do we need that TPG continues his great and necessary job? For me the answer is obvious: yes.
-- have we the money for that? Yes. At least it should be the case till the end of 2014.
-- does this choice can prevent to do other things ? Imo, no, since we should have enough money.
Therefore, my vote is yes to the proposal for he year 2014.
About the reservations of Raphaël, I have started some reseaches and the fact that TPG is a member of the association should not be a problem. But this must to be confirmed. I suggest to continue the investigations for the best way of doing and give the results to the council.

We need an identification number of the company, to have the VAT specified (or a line explaining why there is no VAT, such as for entrepreneurs in France) and TPG should not be member of the Association (or only consultative member, with no voice)
If TPG can't have a company number identification, then we can hire him as an employee (I started to ask informations about this) or use an intermediate company such as eLance or oDesk.
