  260. dwd It was. It'd be nice to pick the random source ahead of time in case we need it.
  261. eevvoor has left
  262. pep. I'd be happy with that
  263. Ge0rG Speaking of process, what about delaying the inauguration to a date some weeks after the vote?
  264. Ge0rG that would give old Board and old Council a chance to properly transfer everything to new B & C
  265. pep. Ge0rG, you want 423 to be handled by this council? :P
  266. pep. I'm not personally against it anyway, propose something?
  267. Ge0rG pep.: didn't I just propose that?
  268. Ge0rG I suppose it's up to Board to decide that
  269. pep. yeah that's what I meant
  270. pep. But maybe members?
  271. pdurbin has joined
  272. Ge0rG pep.: Board surely can delegate that to members. Or kindly ask Alex to add it to the pending vote.
  273. dwd I don't think Board can decide that. I think New Board and Council takes office the moment Alex gives the formal results of the voting.
  274. Zash Is this governed by the bylaws or XEP 1 or something else?
  275. dwd Zash, Bylaws. We could change that, but only by adding it to the voting for the meeting (and we could, bylaws allow that even during the meeting, which we've had to do before).
  276. pep. sure
  277. Zash You can change the bylaws with no warning?
  278. Zash No double vote by separate member meetings?
  279. pep. ugh, TIL members' quorum is 1/3. And a vote can pass with a majority of that quorum, that is 1/6 + 1 of members?
  280. Ge0rG we don't even have very many members.
  281. pep. Still
  282. Ge0rG If we word it like "starting on the 1st of the calendar month one month after the vote", we would get January 1st for a vote in November.
  283. dwd Right. We can entirely change bylaws with the votes of about 5 users.
  284. Ge0rG which would remove the ambiguity between the "2019 Council" and "2020 Council"
  285. patrick has joined
  286. dwd IIRC, we have something about tie-breaks which reduce the needed votes by 1, in effect.
  287. Kev dwd: Well, kinda. We'd need a majority of the quorum, which is based on the number of people who're present or proxy voted, and we usually have a decent number of proxy votes, so doing it with 5 members in practice would be hard, I think?
  288. dwd Kev, Yes, but if you hit the mimimum all the way.
  289. waqas has joined
  290. Kev (It's 9 incidentally)
  291. pep. §4.5, Election and Term. At each annual meeting of Members, the Members shall elect Directors to hold office until the next succeeding annual meeting, in accordance with the procedure defined in Section 3.12 of these Bylaws. Each Director shall hold office for the term for which he or she is elected and until his or her successor shall have been elected and qualified or until his or her earlier resignation, removal or death.
  292. pep. This doesn't say specifically when?
  293. dwd Ah, that's right. See §3.8, second para.
  294. dwd So proxy voters, in effect, vanish from the meeting after they cast their initial vote, but we still keep quorum and a majority of those remaining (ie, present) is all that's needed.
  295. dwd Unless one considers the proxy to still be live, and in effect held by Alex, in which case Alex can in all practical sense do whatever he wants.
  296. dwd But last time we had to do weird shit in the AGM, I think we used that second para to mean the proxy voters had left the meeting.
  297. pdurbin has left
  298. dwd ... and then used a vote on §4.4 to resolve a tie, since we hadn't any other solution at the time.
  299. pep. §3.4 Notice "if the Member has consented to receipt of notices via electronic transmission."
  300. pep. lol
  301. pep. "Please Alex send me notices via snail mail"
  302. pep. I don't want your fancy electronic mails

  308. pep. hmm is that really 9 members btw? `jq '.members[].name' data/members.json | wc -l` says 53. * 1/6 that's 8.8 so 9? + 1
  309. Shell has left
  310. Shell has joined
  311. adiaholic has left
  312. dwd 9 would be a majority.
  313. pep. A majority is not "more than half"?
  314. adiaholic has joined
  315. pep. Ah, right
  316. pep. nvm
  317. patrick has left
  318. dwd As I say, you just need 18 to vote on anything, then usurp the quorum in the meeting and do whatever you like with a majority of those who showed up. Normally about 5.
  319. pep. Indeed
  320. pep. And 5 as a majority is generous, for annual meetings
  321. Ge0rG dwd: we are missing you over in council@
  322. Alex we don't keep records on who shows up, and we don't verify the Ids ;-)
  323. Kev Although do we have a process for how stuff gets onto the Agenda?
  324. pep. Alex, true. It's not like we verified JIDs even :p
  325. pep. (during board/council meetings for example)

  332. Ge0rG you can't verify the council JIDs from the web logs.
  333. Shell has left
  334. Shell has joined
  335. Alex I used to ask for additional agenda items when I announce the meetings. But I think I stopped doing that because nobody asked for adding items
  336. pep. Technically it is an annual meeting, and could be used for more than "just" voting council and board
  337. Alex pep.: agreed
  338. Zash It's quite normal for random organizations here to set the roadmap and budget on such meetings
  339. Zash And that the member meeting agenda has to be annouced waaaaaay in advance
  340. mimi89999 has joined
  341. Zash And that the agenda has an item for "was this announced properly?" and if the answer is no then the entire meeting is invalid
  342. Guus If we're considering doing this, I'd strongly prefer any additional agenda items to be handled to be declared well in advance of the meeting.
  343. Daniel has joined
  344. pep. §3.2 "A meeting of the Members shall be held annually at such time as the Board of Directors may determine".
  345. pep. Zash, here you go, "way in advance"
  346. Zash And as previously mentioned, changes to the bylaws usually require approval on two consecutive member meetings
  347. pep. And §3.4 Notice says 10 to 60 days

  355. stpeter Do note that the members can call for a special meeting at any time, too.
  356. Kev Although the requirement for that is kinda prohibitive :)
  357. pep. "when requested in writing by not less than ten percent (10%) of all members entitled to vote at the meeting"
  358. pep. That's 6 members?
  359. Kev Yep.
  360. Kev Do we have 6 members who can remember how to write? :)
  361. Zash And to where?
  362. pep. Right. Can we add an agenda item for the next annual meeting then (this month)
  363. pep. Might as well use it
  364. pep. To remove this restriction
  365. pep. Alex, ^. Or should I formally send something somewhere?
  366. stpeter I'd say "in writing" could be the members@ list, since that's what we use for formal communications.
  367. pep. Maybe we can just be more explicit
  368. Alex pep.: I did not follow the whole discussion, I joined late and don'tr have the full history. Need to browse the logs, can you point me to it?
  369. pep. Just the last bit with stpeter
  370. Zash Requiring more than one member is sane tho
  371. pep. To reword/make more explicit the bits in §3.3 of the bylaws "or when requested in writing by not less than ten percent (10%) of all members entitled to vote at the meeting"
  372. pep. The "in writing" part

  378. winfried has joined
  379. pep. Can we also not just have PRs/MRs for that..
  380. pep. where is the source of truth for the bylaws? xmpp.org?
  381. pep. Can I just send a PR on github and get it approved by members during a meeting?
  382. moparisthebest Apparently wherever around 5 members gather :)
  383. pep. moparisthebest, no it needs to be announced
  384. moparisthebest This opens all sorts of fun possibilities
  385. Zash I will object to anything that's only done on Github
  386. pep. Zash, not "only"
  387. moparisthebest I think council members should have to wear robes and wizards hats during meetings
  388. pep. (Although I'd really like to have a tracker be used more prominently, it doesn't have to be github)
  389. Zash pep.: Post to members@ or similar.

  394. stpeter Yes it is.

  396. stpeter (Sorry, I am in another meeting on another computer, attention is limited as always.)

  479. Ge0rG moparisthebest [17:29]: > I think council members should have to wear robes and wizards hats during meetings That sounds like a proposal for our bylaws.
  480. Link Mauve Does a VLC hat work too?
  481. moparisthebest it was, I plan to rope 4 more members into agreeing with me at the council/board election meeting Ge0rG
  482. Link Mauve That’s the closest thing I have.
  483. moparisthebest sure Link Mauve I'll amend my proposal then
  484. Ge0rG Link Mauve: you have a pylon hat?
  485. Link Mauve A VLC hat.
  486. Ge0rG I'm strictly against that. Only wizard items should be allowed. Otherwise, somebody will try to get in wearing a horny yak mask or something.
  487. Link Mauve There are pictures of me wearing it on the Internet.
  488. moparisthebest what about "Council members MUST wear robes and pointed hats during meetings" ?
  489. Ge0rG Link Mauve: lies! I've entered "link mauve wearing a vlc hat" into the search box, and the closest thing I got was an Underage Gypsy weddings in Russia
  490. pep. moparisthebest, a council member could have somebody point at their hat and qualify?
  491. moparisthebest I'm fine with it pep.
  492. Link Mauve Ge0rG, I didn’t say they were indexed by your search engine. :p
  493. Ge0rG Link Mauve: so they are on the darknet?
  494. Link Mauve I was on the boat this picture has been taken from: https://kodi.tv/sites/default/files/article/field_image/vlc-tower.jpg

  625. pep. "Section 3.12 Matters Submitted to a Vote. Any matter that may properly come before the Members may be submitted to the Members for a vote at an annual or special meeting upon request signed or approved by not less than five percent (5%) of the Members of the Corporation."
  626. pep. Do I need 5% of the members to agree to correct a typo in the bylaws? :-°
  627. pep. (probably.)
  628. Zash That's a pretty long sentence.
  629. Zash Is it the special meeting that needs the 5% to approve or the matter?
  630. pep. The matter I'd say, because the special meeting is 10%
  631. Zash add parenthesis plz

  638. pep. So if I add agenda items, we'll need at least 18 people to show up during that annual meeting. That's going to be fun
  639. pep. (and probably not happening)
  640. pep. Or did I understand that dwd said earlier that all proxy votes counted as members leaving the meeting didn't affect quorum, hence the number "5" popping up
  641. pep. (as per 3.8 paragraph 2)
