RFD: informal proposal
This is an informal request for discussion about how to handle quorum
and supermajority requirements.
Quorum is a ballot requirement -- all options on the ballot must have
the same quorum requirement.
However, supermajority is an option requirement -- different options
might have different supermajority requirements.
So.. how does this sound:
Group options according to their supermajority requirements -- all
options with the same supermajority requirement go in the same group.
Use CpSSD to pick a winning candidate from within each group.
Use CpSSD with scaled preferences to pick a winner from the set of
Default the election if the picked winner didn't meet quorum.
Does anyone see any significant strategies for inconsistency with this
kind of mechanism?
