Possible amendment for Debian Contributors concept (was: Call for seconds: Suspension of the changes of the Project's membership procedures.)
I really dislike the negative tone of the original proposed resolution,
so I am thinking of proposing this as an alternative option.
The text I'm thinking about is currently this:
| The Debian Project recognizes that many contributors to the project are
| not working withing established frameworks of Debian and thus are not
| provided by the project with as much help as might be possible, useful
| or required.
| We thank Joerg Jaspert for exploring ideas on how to involve
| contributors more closely with the project so that they can get both
| recognition and the necessary tools to do their work.
| We realize that the proposal posted to the debian-devel-announce
| mailinglist is not yet finalized and may not have the support of a large
| part of our community. We invite the DAM to further develop his ideas
| in close coordination with other members of the project, and to present
| a new and improved proposal on the project's mailinglists in the future,
| at least two weeks prior to any planned implementation.
This is not a call for seconds yet, but a request for comments.
So, any changes that should be made before it gets proposed, if it will?
