we already have a formal method: - change is proposed ahead of time like any other business for council to review (which means the community sees it) - council votes and assuming it passed - the dev/council lists are notified of changes (see previous summaries for example) - if there is still no problems, then the project page/GLEP is amended officially if the dev community has a problem, then it should have come up like any other issue along the way. if the only way to resolve the greater dev concerns is with a vote, then that is how it goes. needing a full community vote all the time is a huge time waste for absolutely no gain. -mike
