 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?
