I strongly disagree on this since I support that any change to GLEP39
will require a global dev vote, which means that even if the council
starts a discussion and guides the process for GLEP39 reform, in the end
it will fall to the full developer community to approve it or not.
I do think that the council should have an active role in GLEP39 reform
and that it's natural for the council to "lead" on this process. If
we're able to get this moving forward, I would be open to having the
council nominate a person or committee to spearhead the process.
