Jorge, The topic will not be avoided. I expect it to come up under the Bylaws section of the agenda but I doubt if any firm decisions will be made other than to 'fix the membership rules'. My preference is to get a set of bylaws that the trustees can unanimously agree to adopt so we can move on. The bylaws can be fine tuned later. I have a vested interest in the definition of a "full developer" I want to propose something like "Gentoo developers become members of the Gentoo Foundation on the first anniversary of their join date, as held in the individuals LDAP record." That makes it nice and unambiguous for election officials. It also defines developers as anyone who has an LDAP record. and "Foundation membership ceases at the close of the trustee election following the members retirement from the project." I don't want serving trustees retired unless they resign from the Foundation separately under its bylaws. I did consider something to allow trustees to vote to extend membership but its not needed. Trustees can appoint officers, that's good enough (and less controversial). Anyone can be an officer. Its probably a controversial subject with opinions shaped by discussions on a mailing list rather than on IRC. I like the sound of your Gentoo elections project. Maybe the Foundation needs to appoint a team of returning officers, whose job would be just that. That's a little 'tongue in cheek' but not completely. It could be the first step in the Foundation actively taking on some of the non technical tasks presently managed by the council. That was one of the long term goals in my manifesto. - -- Regards, Roy Bamford (NeddySeagoon) a member of gentoo-ops forum-mods treecleaners trustees -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkgI+ZEACgkQTE4/y7nJvavkSwCgxdQ3NgcGvekX84l03dmVoS3y m9sAoNP6lYzBZsMIp9DafN9rhhijwZ1g =fbCO -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- -- gentoo-nfp@l.g.o mailing list
