Subject Re: [Proposal] remove active/inactive concept
Date Fri, 28 Apr 2006 06:21:50 GMT
Summarising the evolution of this proposal.

The proposal addresses two separate issues:

------------------------
A) Remove each mention of "Active" from guidelines.html

So this will mean that the people who have binding votes
are "PMC Members".

Also change the definitions of "Unanimous consensus" and
"2/3 majority" to stop saying "All voters with binding
votes must vote" and instead refer to number of "votes cast".

Add a note about the chair deciding whether a quorum
has been reached.

Add a note to reinforce that PMC members can be as active
as they choose, with no pressure from the project.
People can be quiet and speak up occasionally when they
see a topic that motivates them enough to contribute
to the discussion or to cast a vote.

PMC members can still declare themselves "emeritus"
if they so choose. Nicola Ken was an example. In such
a case we notify the board and remove them from the
list of PMC members.

------------------------
B) Remove the separation of "active" committers from who.html

There will be one list. The PMC members will be marked.
Emeritus PMC members will be marked in a different way.

There will be explanations of how to see who is "active"
for those who care, e.g. search the mail archives; look
at changes.html; etc.

Add a note to explain the evolution of Forrest to
a top-level project and hence the introduction of
a PMC which did not include the old absent committers.

------------------------

After a bit more chance for discussion, i will
call for two votes.
