How about this. We have the first election, but the half with the most votes get 18-month terms -- just this once! That will set up a six-month staggering of re-elections for half the seats each time, with standard 1-year terms after that. If that's too often, there are alternate possibilities, like doing the same thing at 12 and 18 months, or 9 and 12, etc. -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v1.4.1 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Thunderbird - iD8DBQFCb/58XVaO67S1rtsRAs+MAJ9L3pu8gaQHfwT+aHYG3EMBcqVCfgCgnMlz R+xdCA/MR6dlNTPdaMKX76k= =cXei -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-nfp@g.o mailing list
