Subject [Incubator Wiki] Update of "AlternativeIncubatorAnalysis" by RalphGoers
Date Sat, 04 Feb 2012 16:52:04 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Incubator Wiki" for change notification.

The "AlternativeIncubatorAnalysis" page has been changed by RalphGoers:

  There are other ways that the board could structure the IPMC to allow progressive self-governance
that would cut through the dispute about 'IPMC membership'. Really, this is about release
voting. What's wanted here is a way for 'evolved' podling personnel to have binding votes
on their podling releases without (necessarily) granting them other less-earned status. Chris'
proposal is clearly the simplest and clearest way to accomplish that, but, I'm arguing here,
may have a problematic ratio of baby to bathwater.
  I think that the board process in this area deserves another moment's thought. If a brand-new
project elects its first new PMC member, does the board really want to rubber-stamp it with
the usual ACK process? I hope not. I hope that the board wants at least one member to see
some evidence to support the nomination. Does the board really want to be taking this time?
Or would the board prefer a small IPMC to persist for this purpose?
