But if I am to suggest anything in that regard, it would be to offer that maybe we only concern ourselves with Nokia employees and *direct* contractors since the subject of involvement can be a slippery slope

Seems like an excellent opportunity to clarify the rules to eliminate any ambiguity.

I'll echo this and what others have said in the thread. Robin is well and truly an excellent candidate and I didn't think twice about his connections with Collabora when he announced his nomination.

If we can move forward as things stand right now with Robin still on the ballot and eligible, and settle on taking this hiccup as an opportunity (and a lesson) to improve the wording and clarity of the rules then I'm more than satisfied.
