This is the alternative by JDD. I would not limit it this way since all board members are elected and the appointment is for a short period only.
I only try to give a solution to the following situation:
the board is split between two options. The chairman vote makes the difference (normal)
But then 3 members decide to quit.
what to do?
I think that appointing three new members would give unanimity to a discussed decision, and this can happen very soon after one election, that is stay for near one year.
This is an extreme case - the solution you offered with the limiting, is not one that I like (at least with the limit to 1).
What other alternatives are there to handle this? * if 20 % of the openSUSE members require a new board election, an election will be held for the complete elected seats * ...?
And I don't think dismiss to be again candidate is a good thing, so I propose to say that member quitting can't apply for the board at the next election.
Yes, that rule is part of my proposal, I liked it ;)
