Did the delegates decide this particular matter or was Bug #495721
merely a summary of current practice? The statement there seemed
incomplete in significant ways.
Also, I think we should let the secretary to decide if a GR proposal
modifies some foundation document, overrides a delegate decision, or
requires amendment to be valid, rather than withholding seconds. I'm
not that great at bureaucracy, so I think it's better that only the
secretary decides the rules, rather than having every DD try to use
the rule book as a weapon.
Hope that explains,
