Week of September 26, 2022
We’re in Week 1 of Voting Cycle #7, and coming up on Week 2, which begins on Thursday, October 6 at 7PM GMT. Week 2 is Governance Committee review week.
There have a been a few small but important changes to the Operating Manual, summarized here. These include an update to Governance Committee operations. In particular, “proposals that are not included” in the Roundup thread (see below) by the end of Week 1 (October 5, 7PM GMT) “will not be reviewed by Committees.”
Seven of the 10 proposals from Voting Cycle #6 passed. See them at a glance by selecting the “passed” tag in the forum and scanning for “cycle-6.”
Remember: only those proposals that have “received explicit approval comments from two delegates with >0.5% voting power” will be included in the Cycle #7 Roundup thread.
Take a look through all the proposals tagged “cycle 7,” ask some questions or leave some comments if you are so moved.
