Re: Amendment: automatic expiry-on-failure, to Proposal: Enhance requirements for General resolutions



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

With thanks to suggestions from Wouter Verhelst and Russ Allbery, I
present a redrafted amendment.  Seeing as none of the proposers have
responded, I ask for seconds.  The rationale remains the same: almost
no evidence has been presented for Q or 2Q or pretty much anything
else we've not tried, while linking seconding to population size risks
making "the developers by way of a GR" impotent, so let's keep a
safeguard escape route.

AMENDMENT START
========================================================================
Replace "too small" with "thought to be too small, but there is a
lack of evidence about the correct level".

Replace clause c with "c) if a year has passed, starting from the 
proposal of a general resolution, without any proposal receiving the
required number of seconds, then this resolution expires and the
required number of seconds returns to K."
========================================================================
AMENDMENT END

This amendment may be combined with any of the proposal in
Message-id: <87vdq3gcf6.fsf@vorlon.ganneff.de>
or the amendments in
Message-id: <87r60rgcdd.fsf@vorlon.ganneff.de>
Message-id: <20090322131519.GH4554@halon.org.uk>
and I suggest that their ballot lines be the same as for the proposal or
amended proposals with "with expiry clause" appended.


Thanks for reading,
