Following our discussion, here's a new wording of our statement. Could we get consensus on this so that I put it on the TEI + board list?
1) The TEI Technical Council continues to function and wants to get on with its job of improving and openly maintaining the Guidelines and associated systems and resources on behalf of the TEI Community.
2) The TEI Technical Council is shocked and saddened by the sudden actions of the TEI Board in dismissing its chair and the implications this may have for the ability of the TEI Board to work effectively as representatives of the TEI Community.
3) We desire a greater transparency and accountability in TEI Board activities, in addition to the minutes of meetings it already publishes, and would support reforms that introduced mechanisms making TEI Board activities more transparent and introduced greater consultation with the TEI Community.
4) We wish to know what plans the TEI Board has to rescue the TEI Consortium from what we perceive to be real harm to is reputation and good standing in the community that this incident has caused.
