                      <title>The Proposer</title>
  
                      <p>The proposer is the one who comes up with the discussion that
needs to
                          be addressed.  Any member of the Avalon community may start the
                          discussion. The proposer must follow the procedures listed under
the
                          heading "Prior to the Vote".</p>

                      <title>The Vote Administrator</title>
  
                      <p>The vote administrator is the person who tallies the votes
and reports
                          the results.  The person who actually puts a proposal up for vote
is
                          usually the vote administrator, although this task can be taken
on by
                          someone else.</p>

                      <title>The Voter</title>
  
                      <p>A voter is someone who expresses support, opposition or abstention
for
                          the subject being voted on.  A voter must be an Avalon PMC member.
Input
                          is appreciated from committers and all other members of the community,
                          but only votes from PMC members are counted.</p>

              <section>
                  <title>Prior to the Vote</title>
  
                  <p>Before any vote can take place, the subject must be discussed.
All such
                      discussions take place on the Avalon developer or PMC mailing list,
and
                      have the text "[PROPOSAL]" in the subject line.  That practice alerts
                      members to the fact that you eventually intend to call a vote on the
                      subject.</p>

              <section>
                  <title>The Vote</title>
  
                  <p>When the proposal is ready to be adopted by the community, the
Proposer
                      will call for a vote on the Avalon developers or PMC mailing list. The
                      call for vote must have the text "[PMC:VOTE]" in the subject line. 
That
                      practice alerts the members to the fact that the prior proposal is now
                      ready to vote on, and discussion should stop for the proposal.</p>

                      <title>How to Vote</title>
  
                      <p>The voter responds to the call for vote with an expression
of support,
                          opposition, or abstention.  The exact way to express the voter's
                          position is listed below:</p>
  
                      <ul>
                          <li>+1  a vote supporting the subject</li>
                          <li>+0  a vote abstaining from the subject (but showing some
support).</li>
                          <li>-0  a vote abstaining from the subject (but showing disapproval).</li>
                          <li>-1  a vote opposing the subject</li>
                      </ul>

                  <section>
                      <title>Counting Votes</title>
  
                      <p>The vote administrator will count only the last vote from each
voter.
                          That means a voter may change their vote at any time during the
duration
                          of the vote. </p>

                      <title>Types of Votes</title>
  
                      <p>There are two classes of votes: a Qualified Majority Vote and
a Normal
                          Majority Vote.</p>
  
                      <section>
                          <title>Qualified Majority Vote</title>
  
                          <p>Any vote that affects the texts "Avalon PMC Charter" or
"Avalon PMC
                              Policies and Procedures" is a Qualified Majority Vote. For this
type of
                              vote to pass, it requires support from two-thirds (2/3) of the
voters.</p>

                          <p>All votes that do not fall under the heading of Qualified
Majority Vote
                              are handled as a Normal Majority Vote. If more than half (1/2)
of the
                              voters support it, then the vote has passed.</p>

                      <p>In order for any vote to be considered binding it must have
quorum, and
                          be held for the proper amount of time.</p>

                      <title>Quorum</title>
  
                      <p>For all votes, there must be at least three (3) voters and
half (1/2) of
                          the PMC must cast a vote.</p>

                      <title>Duration</title>
  
                      <p>All votes will be open for an initial period of one week. 
The Vote
                          Administrator may close the vote at any time after that period if
quorum
                          has been achieved.  If quorum could not be reached within the initial
                          one-week period, the vote will remain open for one additional week.
 If
                          the vote still has not achieved quorum, then it is considered failed.
                          The proposer can choose to bring it up later when quorum can be
reached.</p>

                  <p>When the vote is closed, the results of the vote are summarized
by the
                      Vote Administrator.  The vote administrator will send an email to the
                      Avalon developers or PMC list with the text "[PMC:VOTE-RESULT]" in the
                      subject that has the summary.  The summary will include the count of
all
                      +1, +0, -0, and -1 responses, and the final verdict of whether the
                      subject passed.</p>
