The whole discussion was about how we handle the issues. Large consultation and
consensus is key. Adoption of the amendments by “members” votes shall be
administrative and legal formalities.

OK. Let now look at the 75% majority also called Super Majority. 75% of what ?
The Registered members ? The total membership ?
BTW: In my mail(*)posted on the 29th June, i suggested that we also improved
things here. These points seem to not have been (or yet) considered.
4- Amend 12.10 (ii) to set the quorum at 10% of the total membership either
present physically or remotely
5- Amend 12.11 to set minimum number of votes. For all vote, a minimum of
votes from 10% of the total eligible voters required.
Hope this helps
