Re: Policy process
Here is my take on what we need to do to rejuvenate policy
creation (which is quite moribund, in case you had not noticed, since
I have stopped working on it pending the DPL's delegation of power).
a) we need to keep using the BTS to record what's going on, and not
let things die out and fall between the cracks;
b) we need to make sure that real issues, opened by people without
-policy expertize, or time, do not just fall off the ends;
c) we need to recognize expertize in areas without hard coding names
into the process (this should have Ian's approval, he keeps talking
about how we should not needp procedures, and how we should let
common sense dictate proper course of action)
d) we need to be able to get over frivolous objections
e) we need a deadlock breaker,
f) we need a person to figure when we have consensus, if that is in
So we need a person who can ungum the proceedings, who pushes
unsexy proposals, and who can recognize expertize (or be willing to
ask) while attempting to break deadlocks.
I do not think we need a few score properly annointed people.
Sorry never means having your say to love.
