asking for a close of debate and:
I hereby move for a vote by the Membership to mandate a public record of the comitteemenbers vote for, against or abstention of, for $SUBJECT, to be included in the minutes. a reason for the particular vote would be welcome but not mandatory. note that private matters as those of a particularly personal matter or of non-disclosure type would be considered outside this direction.
call for seconds
I would argue that to start doing this outside of exceptional circumstances is changing the role of the board
What Patrick proposes will change the role of the Board??? I think not. The role of the Board would not change in any way.
No what was proposed toward the end of this thread was that the board start putting decisions to a vote of all members which clearly is a change.
no, that was definitely NOT the request. the request was a call for a vote by the membership to have board voting records public except where non-disclosure or personal issues were present. we would like to know how members of the board vote.
Well you can do this if you want but its not going to have a big impact as the board almost never deals with issues that don't involve non-disclosure or personal issues. The whole point of the board is to deal with these issues because no one else in the project can. If we are dealing with anything that is not one of these issues you have the right to ask the board why are we dealing with something that could be handled by the community.
