In Reply to: [gentoo-project] [GLEP 39 overhaul] Does the council need a lead? by Denis Dupeyron
Summary for this topic. Again a list of voting propositions to be
discussed during the meeting.

 - Unlike other projects the council does not need a lead.

 - The council needs a lead who will take charge of coordinating
council actions and act as a speaker, secretary, chairman, etc.. (or
will be responsible for finding somebody to execute these tasks), and
will be the one to blame in case of them not being executed properly.

 - Same as above and the council lead gets an additional vote when
needing to break ties.

 - The council needs a lead who will also act as community/distro
leader. What exactly that could mean needs to be defined.

Separate decision (which could depend on the result of the previous vote):

 - The council lead is elected by the newly elected members. The
council members can decide to elect a new lead at any time (in case of
away or slacking or else).

 - The council lead is elected by the developer community. How
exactly? And how does the community replace the lead in case (s)he
performs poorly or else?

Denis.
