Subject: [VOTE] Change the project bylaws to modify the PMC Chair voting process and add a
term length

Hi all,

As previously discussed [1], we'd like to make a change to our bylaws [2] to modify the method
of selecting a PMC chair.  We also want to add a term for the chair.

[1] http://markmail.org/message/ifwwce657u36yuwz
[2] https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/CLOUDSTACK/Apache+CloudStack+Project+Bylaws



Below are the specific changes I'd like you to vote on:

(1) A change to bylaw section 2.4.5 as follows:

CURRENT:

  2.4.5. If the current chair of the PMC resigns, the PMC votes to
  recommend a new chair using Single Transferable Vote (STV) voting.
  See http://wiki.apache.org/general/BoardVoting for specifics. The
  decision must be ratified by the Apache board.

PROPOSED:

  2.4.5. If the current chair of the PMC resigns, or the term of the
  current chair expires, the PMC votes to
  recommend a new chair through consensus via a lazy 2/3 majority
  voting method.  In the case that consensus is not achieved, the PMC
  will vote for a chair using Single Transferable Vote (STV) voting.
  Due to the fact that the discussions are about specific individuals,
  this vote would be held on the cloudstack-private mail list.
  The decision must be ratified by the Apache board.

(2) The addition of a new bylaw section: 2.4.6:

PROPOSED:

  2.4.6. The role of PMC chair will have a one year term.  The intention
  of this term is to allow for a rotation of the role amongst the PMC
  members.  This intention does not prohibit the PMC from selecting the
  same chair to serve consecutive terms.



Per our bylaws (section 3.4.9), this change requires a lazy majority of PMC members to pass.

The whole community is encouraged to vote on this issue!

This vote will be open for at least 72 hours.

Please respond with one of the following:

[ ] +1  approve
[ ] +0  no opinion
[ ] -1  disapprove (and reason why)

Thanks!
