Some time ago I remember Sol proposing Carlos Ray Moreno as a CNSIG's
trusted advisor, and I wanted to say that I fully agree with this.
But since there was no reaction, perhaps it would make sense to describe
in more detail this role (what type of "advices" will our advisors be
expected to offer? Will they be part of the council e-mail list? Do we
have already some trusted advisors and should they be part of our web
site?), and the process for electing trusted advisors (Shall we vote
through e-mail or should we keep such decisions for our "assembly"?)
From our bylaws:
"The CNSIG will also have a special membership class for Trusted
Advisors; these will be proposed and accepted by the Executive Council.
Their advisory role shall be explicit. The Executive Council may require
their presence in their meetings, with a voice but with no vote."
The first two people in this role are Luca Belli and Andrés Piazza, who
took part of the CNSIG formation.
For the time being, the advisors participation has been limited to the
working groups. In the case of Luca and Andrés they are both part of the
Policy and Regulation group.
Regarding the decision, the bylaws don't say anything specific, so I
propose that we just make the decision through the mailing list,
following our procedure for decisions, which I quote here:
2. Decision making process
2.1. Operative decisions that can be retracted do not require prior
voting, just informing.
2.2. Procedure for decisions that need voting:
2.2.1. Decisions can be made over e-mail threads. E-mails must be marked
2.2.2. Default timeframe for decisions is 5 days. It can be extended by
5 additional days upon request of council members.
2.2.3. If there are not enough votes (51% of organizations represented)
the decision cannot be made.
2.2.4. After 5 days, a Council officer will share the result of the
vote, what is the quorum, and other relevant details. The e-mail will be
marked with the tag [Decision reached]
Let's make it formal and everyone please participate so we can reach the
necessary number of votes.
I'll start the decision threads for Carlos and also for the Sudo Mesh /
People's Open Network application.
