Perhaps, but that's not enough to form a
base for punitive action,
I see two ways out - we rephrase or amend the guiding principles and
include something like: "As a member, you explicitly agree to ..."
Ahhhh. Agreeing to the "Guiding Principles" is not "explicit"?
Agreeing is "Agreeing", there is no splitting hairs here!
Haha, I'm sure you realise the wording would have to change too.
Or we empower
the board to act as umpire with arbitrary powers.
The does not need "arbitrary" powers, but *must* be empowered to
enforce the standards/principles we attribute, lacking some other
entity which to my knowledge has not been formed. Until the formation
of *that* entity, the board is the only enabled/empowered agent/umpire
But they clearly don't even themselves think so. Look at Pascals loooong
email about the expulsion. Had the board felt empowered and in charge,
the two lines I suggested would have sufficed.
mind either one, but I do appreciate that not everyone might
see option #2 as very attractive.
Without the existence of an "empowered" agent, we, openSUSE, are only
words, ie: Guiding Principles.
And that is status quo.
