Donnie,

The council have met monthly as required by the GLEP.  This meeting is 
single topic about policy, it neither requires to be in public, nor 
does it require anyone other than -council. A closed session or emails 
or teleconference would be quite in order for determining and agreeing 
policy.

Forcing an election over this issue, is in effect, a vote of no 
confidence in our council   

Delaying the policy setting for three months, until a new council is 
elected (1 month nominations, 1 month elections, a few weeks for admin) 
is not in the best interests of Gentoo, nor those whose appeals will be 
delayed.

While the present council would remain in office until replaced, they 
could hardly make a ruling on the very issue that forced the vote of no 
confidence.

An election now, over this, is just silly.
