Project Proposals


In various situations (2.c, 6.h, 6.j, 6.n) the TOB shall hold a vote. These votes can happen on the phone, email, or via a voting service, when appropriate.

TOB members can either respond "agree, yes, +1", "disagree, no, -1", or "abstain". A vote passes with two-thirds vote of votes cast. An abstain vote equals not voting at all.
