Given that I feel the project's way of removing MIA developers is a
bit random, a bit opaque and not an explicit part of the NM agreement,
I think anything dependent on the actual number of Developers risks
paralysing the democratic processes. Debian Membership should
probably be addressed before increasing the GR requirements.

Further, the discussion on debian-project in December asked for data
and there's little available data to support the options in this GR.
I think it's improper that the proposal did not link the discussion.
Because there's little available data, I'm open to experimenting with
this, but I think we need a safeguard to avoid paralysis. I think a
so-called "sunset" expiry is a good idea.
Replace "too small" with "thought to be too small, but there is a
lack of evidence about the correct level".
Replace clause c with "c) if general resolutions are proposed but none
receives the required number of seconds in a year, this resolution
expires and the required number of seconds returns to K."
This amendment may be combined with any of the proposal in
or the amendments in
and I invite their supporters to accept this amendment.
Otherwise, I ask for seconds for all three combinations.
I suggest that their ballot lines be the same as for the proposal or
amended proposals with "with expiry clause" appended.
Hope that helps,
