There's an idea.

I prefer to focus on defining a process with whimsy in mind, and then
add support for making it easier to do something that could also be
done outside of whimsy.

Applied here, there could be a simple directory in of draft resolutions.
The board agenda tool could have one or more forms forms that assist
with drafting resolutions and place them in that directory.  People
could update those resolutions directory, and perhaps the tool could
also be used for update.

The board agenda tool could add support for posting a draft resolution
found in this directory to this month's agenda.
