I'm fine with the council appointing a leader from within, or not, at its own discretion (ie write it up that way). Then the circumstances of the moment will dictate how this is handled. To be binding any non-emergency decision must still be ratified by the council. That's how parliamentary systems work anyway as I understand it. As far as "Gentoo Leader" goes - I'll address that in a different thread. Rich
