Subject [VOTE] amend the bylaws
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2019 14:54:46 GMT

I have prepared a pull request that amends the bylaws:

this PR makes two changes:

- Add explicit <p> elements to fix display issue

- Remove redundant and potentially confusing paragraph about the chair

The first sentence of this paragraph repeats some of the text in the
previous paragraph. The second sentence covers powers and responsibilities
shared with the PMC, and stating this in this section runs the risk of
implying that the chair has special powers, which is not the case. (See ยง
3.8. Decision Types)

- General copyedit for style, grammar, spelling, etc.

- Detab the file and fix some minor HTML formatting issues

because this is a change to the bylaws, the PR requires voting and a lazy
2/3 majority (binding votes: PMC members) to pass

for convenience, I have attached the commits as patches to this email. I
hope they get through the list filters

please cast your vote now

in three or more days, I will tally the votes and announce the result

thank you!

P.S. I made the copyedit change because, as it turns out, my writing has
improved a lot since 2015. I have, to the best of my ability, preserved the
meaning and intent of the text
