Jorge,

The topic will not be avoided. I expect it to come up under the Bylaws 
section of the agenda but I doubt if any firm decisions will be made 
other than to 'fix the membership rules'.

My preference is to get a set of bylaws that the trustees can 
unanimously agree to adopt so we can move on. The bylaws can be fine 
tuned later.

I have a vested interest in the definition of a "full developer" I want 
to propose something like "Gentoo developers become members of the 
Gentoo Foundation on the first anniversary of their join date, as held 
in the individuals LDAP record." That makes it nice and unambiguous 
for election officials. It also defines developers as anyone who has an 
LDAP record. 

and "Foundation membership ceases at the close of the trustee election 
following the members retirement from the project."
I don't want serving trustees retired unless they resign from the 
Foundation separately under its bylaws.

I did consider something to allow trustees to vote to extend membership 
but its not needed. Trustees can appoint officers, that's good enough 
(and less controversial). Anyone can be an officer. 

Its probably a controversial subject with opinions shaped by 
discussions on a mailing list rather than on IRC.

I like the sound of your Gentoo elections project. Maybe the Foundation 
needs to appoint a team of returning officers, whose job would be just 
that. That's a little 'tongue in cheek' but not completely. It could be 
the first step in the Foundation actively taking on some of the non 
technical tasks presently managed by the council. That was one of the 
long term goals in my manifesto.
