Team, Votes by email must be after the meeting. How else can council members voting by email take into account any discussion on the topic that happened at the meeting? Anything that allows flexibility is a good thing as long as transparency is maintained, so vote emails need to be posted with the records of council meetings. -- Regards, Roy Bamford (Neddyseagoon) an member of gentoo-ops forum-mods trustees
