I'm quite happy with how it is atm.

If we can get a pro-bono lawyer to have a look that would be great. If
not, I think we can also go over it once more ourselves and afterwards
accept it.

I'm not sure if it's worth the effort unless we don't need a general
meeting for other reasons (like DC13). If it's the only topic I would
just do that at the AGM in 2013. This does still not exclude further
modifications at the same AGM if someone wants to propose them.

At least Luca, myself and Didier have seen the venue. I guess at some

sure if we want to combine this with a debian.ch general meeting. But
I'm not against the idea either as long as I don't have to organize the

Why? The current bylaws don't have any special majority requirements for
changes to the bylaws. So a simple majority of every member that attends
is enough.
