But, you are saying that the council has to approve changes for glep
39 before they can come to a vote. This would mean that say a majority
of developers doesn't like something in glep 39, but the council
doesn't approve the change. That change will never come to a vote. In
other words, the council has control of the rules that govern it. Is
that what you are intending?
