we just discussed about that in the BoD call, and agreed to only let
members vote. After all, it's their TDF and their money being used for
the conference, and anyone who is fairly active should become a member soon.
I am in favor of including as many active people as possible, but the
issue indeed is that when we have a wider voting scope than members, it
will be hard to draw a line between "all the world" and "contributors".
We will always miss someone eligible, whereas for members, it is clear.
Hard choice, but I hope you all support the decision.
The proceeding will be as follows:
- I plan to publish the proposals by the end of this week and send them
to the announce@ list
- The proponents were not fully aware that details will be all made
public, so they were allowed to remove confidential information (like
private phone numbers) they did not want to have in public
- All other additions, like giving out more details that became clear
later, should be solely done on the firstname.lastname@example.org
mailing list. Proponents and the community are invited to discuss the
proposals, ask questions and send in enhancements
- Voting will start soon thereafter. All TDF members will get their
voting credentials by e-mail to their registered e-mail address, and
will have then one week of time to cast their vote
