> 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)
