Subject: [gentoo-project] Council discuss: overlapping council terms of two years
Date: Mon, 01 Aug 2011 18:48:31
Message-Id: 20110801184751.GS20656@gentoo.org
After the new council was setup, a "introductionary" meeting was held to
get the new council members going a bit.  Since this meeting replaced an
ordinary meeting, it is considered a waste of time by some [1].

Roy Bamford suggested to change the scheme to
  "Two year terms and elections every year for half the seats."

This requires an update to GLEP39 [2] on all points that reference the
one year period of the council.  It requires addition of the two
overlapping terms, and dealing with the "less than 50% attendance"
point.

Voting for this point makes little to no sense for as long as the
implications to GLEP39 and possibly other organisational issues aren't
clear.  Hence, at this stage, brief discussion by the council in the
next meeting can only make it clear if the current council has the
intention to supports a change like this or not.

Please discuss how to implement a change like this.  Starting point
would be to see what changes would be necessary to GLEP39.  Also,
whether the term would have to become 2 year, or the votings be twice a
year.  All contributions, objections or alternative ideas welcome.
