In Reply to: [gentoo-council] Resolve unfinished GLEP 39 business by Denis Dupeyron
i still dont see what is wrong with the amendment process that has been used 
multiple times in the past and ive pointed out a few times (but apparently no 
one has noticed).  treat it like any other item of business.
 - it is announced on the gentoo-dev mailing list as an item (so it has to be 
posted weeks ahead of time)
 - if the developer community really has a problem, issues will be aired
 - once issues are aired out, vote on it like any other item
 - post exact changes to the mailing list as part of the meeting summary
again, if there are real issues with the changes, people will complain.  
council members are *voted in* because the community *trusts them to make the 
important decisions*.  if the decision made really pisses off the community, 
again you will hear about it and you can take the response into consideration.  
plus, if you do something really stupid, it isnt like your ass will remain in 
power.  wringing your hands over nonexistent issues is simply wasting 
everybody's time.
