Thank you very much for the list.
However it still leaves open, how exactly to form a community vote. The
last time, we made a decision, we identified the major teams working on
the server. Each team entitled a representative for a vote in the
committee. The representative was expected to discuss the topics within
the team and come to the meeting with a team vote. I wonder, how the
community can be involved in this procedure, or if a new procedure might
serve the purpose better.
I believe, I've seen network voting before, but I don't know details.
After an announcement there was a time frame during which votes were
accepted. But I don't know, how voters have been selected. This all must
be done transparently, while protecting personal data.
This might all be too much effort for a relative small issue. But facing
the enraged protest last time, I'd rather see this be done correctly.
