I would like to see something like the following added to the resolution:

6. In the event that the NTPsec project dissolves without defining what
SPI shall do with the managed assets or the NTPsec project becomes
provable uncontactable for SPI, the board reserves the right to assign
those assets to it's general fund.

That maybe needs a bit of rewording as i am not a native english
speaker, but i hope everyone gets what i mean here.

The smae paragraph should IMHO be added to all the other 4 resolutions
we tend to vote on in two days.
