Întruniri

Data votării: 2019-12-03

Propunere: Paolo Cavallini

Rationale: To make our meetings more productive, the proposal is:

  • Regular meeting once a month, at a fixed date ad hoc short meetings are encouraged, and can be called anytime to discuss single issues and to have faster decisions and avoid too long regular meetings; only a subset of the PSC members can be present at the ad hoc meetings, if they are not interested in that specific topic; their vote will be counted as +0. A PSC member can block an ad hoc meeting if he feels strongly about participating but has not a time slot available. In this case it will be postponed to the monthly standard meeting.

  • Every meeting will appoint a Chair, normally the PSC Chair, and a Secretary (not necessarily always the same person), who will have the responsibility for completing the minutes; cooperative editing should be allowed.

Decision making

Data votării: 2019-12-03

Rationale: To make our decision process, making it faster and more transparent, the proposal is:

  • One PSC member raise on the PSC mailing list a topic to be decided.

  • If the proponent believes the discussion in ML is sufficient, the member calls for a vote.

  • If not, the member adds the point to the next PSC voice meeting, where it will be discussed and voted.

  • Once voted, the member passes the decision to the Secretary, who adds the resolution to the list of resolutions.
