That's extremely sad and a bad thing for an open standards community 
such as OpenID. However the board members and executive must clearly 
understand, that the minute money is involved, people have expectations! 
Potential membership management problems might come up very soonish when 
all those new memberships are going to expire.

Echoing Nat's comment from earlier, there are also obligations from the 
organizers. Making the members feel good is certainly appreciated, but 
making them feel bad as with Carsten is really unnecessary and a 
failure. I was the opinion that we need to let the new board and 
administrative head (executive) have some time in order to sort things. 
However they weren't voted/hired for a holiday camp, they were voted and 
hired to get things done - with priority and urgency. Sorry guys, so far 
failure all over.
