8 2 of us have shown up -- amne and me. That's really pathetic, guys. What
9 happened? Did the rest of you miss the announcement in the summary? I
10 was looking at the IRC log from last week, and here's what I saw
11 (relevant parts only):
13 < FlameBook+> I'm fine with the reschedule, as I'm probably going away soon, too
14 < dberkholz@> amne, Betelgeuse, FlameBook, solar -- rescheduling to a special session work?
15 < dberkholz@> ah, FlameBook already said yes
16 <Betelgeuse@> o
17 <Betelgeuse@> k
18 < dberkholz@> looks like amne went to bed
19 < dberkholz@> enough of us agree on that, so let's do it
21 lu_zero said on IRC last night that he was going to be traveling today,
22 but nobody's shown up to proxy for him:
24 < lu_zero@> dberkholz today we'll the extended council meeting, isn't it?
25 < dberkholz@> i optimistically hope it's not "extended" in the "taking a long time" sense
26 < dberkholz@> but the postponed topics from last week, yes
27 < lu_zero@> dberkholz again I'll be travelling
28 < dberkholz@> lu_zero: oh, did it just come up?
29 < lu_zero@> dberkholz pretty much =_=
30 < lu_zero@> lately my time-space position is quite random
31 < lu_zero@> _Hopefully_ I'll be there
32 < lu_zero@> but 4 hours of travel can be extended =_=
34 That means that it's conceivable that if solar (vapier's proxy), vapier
35 and jokey didn't check IRC again or read the council summary, they
36 could've missed the announcement. I guess I can see how people who are
37 at the meeting might not read the summary, because they sat through it.
38 I blame myself for not sending a standalone announcement outside of the
39 summary.
41 tove brought up an interesting point from GLEP 39:
43 If any meeting has less than 50% attendance by council members, a
44 new election for all places must be held within a month. The 'one
45 year' is then reset from that point.
47 musikc questioned whether that was only intended for the regular
48 meetings or also irregular ones like this.
50 Open up the floodgates, folks. What do you think, what should we do? I
51 look forward to hearing your advice.
53 Thanks,
54 Donnie
