Hello everyone,

I would have to agree with Jordi here. The point is that there are
provisions in this policy that are excluding members to participate in the
consensus process, and even appointing the CEO to lead one. If we are
advocating for openness here, there should be enough representation from
the community and strengthen their participation in this process.
Thank you.

> Those are my objections on this proposal, as explained in the session:
> 3.3 the PDP is not just "guidelines" it is strict rules, it can't be
> subjected to interpretations and then we come into troubles. CPM is rules.
> 3.3.1 is very wrong to assign only one cochair to each policy. Both of
> them shall be co-leading it, so in case of one of them failure, the other
> one can follow without further delay
> 3.3.3 there is no determination of who can participate in consensus to
> elect chairs or voting if that's the case.
> 3.3.6. rejecting inputs is discriminatory. If someone was too busy to
> participate in part of the discussion, he/she has the right to come in at
> any time during the discussion. May have inputs that have not been
> considered before and in any case, he has the right to express opinion.
> That section must be completely deleted.
> 3.3.8. Is bad to have a mention to specific sections of the bylaws, they
> can change (they should in fact, they must not encroach the community and
> PDP).
> 3.3.9 Lack of consensus definition. Many folks don't read RFCs - there is
> no clear view of if the consensus is determined also in the mailing list
> discussion.
> Lack of last-call definition
> Lack of clear timings for all the process.
