The original proposal was limited to VOTEs on personnel issues (misspelled as
"personal").  Has that changed?  I hope not.

One of the downsides of resolving this issue through lazy consensus is that no
codified proposal with clear language has emerged, setting the stage for later
disputes about just what we agreed to.

I anticipate that except in the rarest of circumstances, there will be no
confusion about what constitutes the status quo for personnel issues.
