Subject [DISCUSS] Bylaw change to make branch creation or deletion lazy consensus
Date Thu, 18 Aug 2016 23:04:22 GMT

I am proposing we change the bylaws so that a branch can be created or
deleted by lazy consensus of the PMC: "Lazy consensus requires no -1
votes ('silence gives assent')"

Right now the bylaws do not say what kind of vote is required for a
branch creation or deletion.

This is a change to the bylaws, and so requires lazy majority (3
binding +1 votes and more binding +1 votes than -1 votes) from PMC
members before it can be committed.

This is the DISCUSS thread. Later I plan to call a VOTE thread.
