[Community-Discuss] Accountability assessment - bylaws changes

Hello all,

I have a question about item 12 (last, "Policies introduced by the
Board") among the proposed changes.

So far we have "measuring of acceptance" at the PDP meetings, no
"approval" or "voting".

This suggestion introduces "endorsement" during the PDP meeting, while
all other PDP decisions are officially done on the mailing list.

Is the endorsement to be required from all(?) or majority(?) of ...
... people in the room? remote participation?

Sorry, the intention is definitely good, but I happen to have more
