[GRASS5] Proposal: RFC 1: Project Steering Committee Guidelines

Hi all,

I think that all contributors should have a possibility to vote not only
PSC members. I don't see any point in delegating votes from
about 10 persons to some 5 PSC members. Why people doing
a lot of work for GRASS who don't have time for or don't want to become
PSC members should not participate in decision process?

My proposal is that PSC prepares only a question for voting
and all 'contributors with vote' can vote about it. The proposal
passes if majority of 'contributors with vote' votes for the
proposal (clear majority, no vetos).

'Contributors with vote' will be all contributors (not only developers)
who did substantial contributions to the project. Initialy it can be persons
mentioned as candidates for PSC. New 'contributors with vote'
can be accepted by voting.
