Quite possibly.

I think this is a good idea.  Are you volunteering to maintain the
wiki page, and post periodic summaries of the schedule and so on ? :-)

I think we need to get our GR procedures sorted before we tackle the
others since the others may well involve GRs.

We have a number of constitutional proposals:

    - Require Secretary to include position statement URLs in ballots
    - Require Secretary to assist people with ballot drafting and
       empower Secretary to briefly delay votes to do so
    - Increase GR quorum (various options)
    - Clarify who is responsible for interpreting and enforcing the SC
    - Fix TC supermajority off-by-one error
    - Increase TC maximum size
