Team,

The new text should be an update to GLEP39. Then we all know where to 
find it. If its a newly invented form of document it will be lost. 

The revised GLEP39 should explicitly state that it can be amended by 
some vote or another of the council ... probably unamimous. After all, 
we can vote them out in 11 months time or less.
The reality is that if the council did something many devs disagreed 
with they would make their collective voices heard and the decision 
would be tempered or reversed.

If the idea of the council voting to change GLEP39 does not appeal, 
several options can be added the the referendum that it sounds like we 
will be having.
