Discussion period starts for the Constitutional amendment



Hi Folks,

       About three years ago, When we talked about this the last time
 around, in the summer on 2000, there were two camp, with two wildly
 different interpretations of the constitution, regarding section
 4.1.5 of the constitution. This amendment was proposed to resolve
 that ambiguity. We now have three related proposals, all of whom have
 had the required number of sponsors.


======================================================================

 4.2. Procedure

  1. The Developers follow the Standard Resolution Procedure, below. A
     resolution or amendment is introduced if proposed by any Developer
     and sponsored by at least K other Developers, or if proposed by
     the Project Leader or the Technical Committee.
  4. The minimum discussion period is 2 weeks, but may be varied by up
     to 1 week by the Project Leader. The Project Leader has a casting
     vote. There is a quorum of 3Q.
  7. Q is half of the square root of the number of current Developers.
     K is Q or 5, whichever is the smaller. Q and K need not be
     integers and are not rounded.
