(Now that I've read through all of the responses on -project.)
Back when we voted on the new metastructure I read the GLEP as meaning
the regularly scheduled meeting. However, since ciaranm wrote the
proposal and has stated that he clearly meant it to be any meeting at
all, then I guess it means it is time for an election. However, I still
would like the intent of the GLEP clarified. If I can misread the
intent of the GLEP, then so can others as well.
As far as miscommunication for holding the meeting, I am giving the
council the benefit of the doubt based upon Donnie's intial email.
