I have a question about this "Overseer" role. Where do they come from and how are they selected?

They are elected by the members of the management group from among their own number. DJ makes the point that the members of the group can act as overseers. As long as they have access to records and their availability for that task is made known, I agree.

Regarding the section 'Date' and the question who will vote this in.

IMO, it is the same group of people as those currently registered at the private forum. Regarding that, the PM I sent out the other day garnered a number of PM and direct emails to me. Counting the folks that are actively discussing the issues on the forum and the PM / emails we now have 13 of the 19 individuals ( names suppled to me from James ) as voicing an agreement that we move forward with this.

I would perhaps include in the charter, as an amendment perhaps the names of the first board, and admins. Then send another PM to the group ( perhaps grown now, so need new list from James ) for approval. Perhaps call this the interim board, and setup a full vote by the members say 3 or 6 months hence to ratify this initial vote?

Merging the streams

I have merged the streams, but have not addressed Drew's question about Admins and Mods I think these folks will answer to the Dir of IT and the Dir of Content respectively. Security hackers or checkers, such as me would answer to the President or Chair. Best practice of not putting the CSO under the CIO.

Yes, of course, everybody can talk to anybody about anything, because we are really all friends here. This must be maintained or much of the fun will drain out.

Membership of the group

I think that anyone who is registered on the site is eligible to join the group, but we should have some sort of election / selection process to eliminate SPAM entrants. TerryE 04:42, 5 September 2007 (CEST)

Content of the Site

I feel that we need a statement that all content of the site should be made under GPL OD licence. The constition should state this and therefore "Decisions on access to records of decisions of the board by persons other than ombudsmen shall be made by the board." is in conflict with this. All decisions should be public. — TerryE 05:00, 5 September 2007 (CEST)


This is a great idea. We can have maximum transparency. Saphil 16:50, 5 September 2007 (CEST)
