This is a misunderstanding, anyone from the TB community who was
available on IRC at the time was also encouraged to vote. I was the one
who collected those votes, it was only a few. I'm not suggesting we did
the best job of this, nothing was announced beforehand, etc. but in the
nature of trying to get things done, we made the best decisions
available to us.
There was also a discussion about what constitutes the "TB community",
that phrase means wildly different things to different people. I'm sure
the community has morphed slightly from what it was a year ago and I'd
be all for including anyone who wants to be involved in making decisions.
As to Kent's proposal, I don't feel extremely strongly either way. I
currently see a voting procedure as a possible distraction to the
community; there would likely be large debates about how to set it up,
who is allowed to vote, how to fairly tally those votes, etc. I don't
think we're in a good place to deal with any of those questions right
now. I think this leads to me supporting JoeS' idea of re-evaluating
this in another year's time, perhaps with allowing the council to ask
people to join if council members wish to step down (or having a vote
for those positions...but that pretty much goes back to my previous points).
