[pgrouting-users] PSC - what next?

Hi list,

I made some changes in the wiki:

   - Created a RFC wiki page: http://pgrouting.postlbs.org/wiki/RFC
   - Called "PSC guideline" RFC-01: http://pgrouting.postlbs.org/wiki/RFC/01
   - Kept only basic information on the previous PSC wiki page:

Then I wrote RFC-02 to describe the changes involved with moving to OSGeo
Feel free to edit the document and add additional information.

Stephen, I think the RFC's were a good idea. Thank you for that!
I first thought it just makes everything more complicated, but it doesn't.
Anyone who has some good proposals, feel free to add some new RFC.

 Also updated on the wiki http://pgrouting.postlbs.org/wiki/PSC

Yes, this veto thing also came up in a discussion with Venka. As far as I
understood if there is a veto by one member and if no solution or compromise
can be found, then the majority of a vote of all PSC members is sufficient.
Here is the paragraph:

*If a proposal is vetoed, and it cannot be revised to satisfy all parties,
then it can be resubmitted for an override vote in which a majority of all
eligible voters indicating +1 is sufficient to pass it. Note that this is a
majority of all committee members, not just those who actively vote. *

So as an example if I ask to vote for RFC-02 and only you and Anton vote,
but one of you vetoes, then it requires all PSC members to vote. Otherwise
it would pass even with two people's vote, right?

For me this procedure sounds not bad. And to keep a kind of "standard" PSC
guideline I'm in favour not to change this part. But well, the PSC has to
agree? ;-)


PS: I will keep this RFC-02 for a view days for editing and discussion and
if there are no complaints, let's get votes for RFC-01, RFC-02 and a new
release. Maybe April 1st. is not the best day for this ;-)
