There are currently no rules or guidelines that state how exactly proposals, seconds and cfv's should be made. Can you think of a set of simple guidelines for this? Most people so far seem to want us to spam every possible debian list with this information, but I feel that is a very bad solution. > Thirdly, I wouldrather we not turn everything automatically > into a general resolution from the word go.

It hasn't been possible for long now to use general resolutions, I think we need some more experience with them to see for what they are fit and what can better be decided using other means. I still think the moving-non-free proposal is fit for decision via a general solution by the way. > I think in this case a two week discussion period is nowhere > near long enough for a contentios issue like this. This specific issue has been discussed at length at least once this year, and at least twice last year. Both times the discussions lasted about 2 weeks and then died off. If the discussion is still raging next week and new arguments are being made I can postpone issueing the call for votes, but I don't expect that to be necessary. Wichert.
