Hi all,

As it seems discussion on DEP 12 has reached its end, and we received generally positive feedback, I am requesting a vote from the technical board on the following:

"Shall we accept DEP 12 and send it to the DSF Board for further approval?"

Note that as this is a governance change, it requires a 4/5 majority from the Technical Board, after which it will go to the DSF Board for a vote, and after which it may go to the membership for a vote if the two Boards believe that it should (you can read more about these requirements in DEP 10).


My vote is +1, as I am the author of the DEP and believe it is in the best interests of the longevity of the Django project and sustainable governance.

Andrew

Thanks!

Reminder: according to DEP 10 voting will end on December 2nd, 2022 AoE (members of the Technical Board may change their votes at any time prior to closing of the final voting period).

Hi,

+1 from me, but I'd like to ask the wider community (ie DSF members) whether they support this change.

While there has been some opposition on whether a change likes this will actually change things, I think that given the overall good reception of the proposal it is at least worth to try it.

Cheers,
Florian

Hi All. 

Tom Forbes is currently unable to post to the Google Group here, due to Currently Undiagnosed Google Account Weirdness™. 

For the record he's asked me to say that his vote is +1 in support of the change, but I feel we should probably move voting to the forum because of this. 


Kind Regards,

Carlton

Yes, I agree we can use the forum in future since it's less tied to Google.

Provided the current +5 vote carries through to the end of the voting period, I will be suggesting that the Technical Board triggers the DEP 10 mechanism where we move this to the membership for a vote once the DSF Board has performed their vote, as it only seems appropriate.

Hi all,

I am pleased to announce that this vote has passed with 5 Board members voting +1 and no other votes.

I will now proceed to notify the DSF Board that they must hold a vote, as is required by DEP 10. Either they or I will update the list with information once that vote has been concluded and a result reached.

Andrew
