Leadership Voting Policy

From Joomla! Documentation

The following are Joomla! Leadership Voting policies.

PLT[edit]

The following policy was accepted by the standing members of the PLT on, 29 Nov 2013 in an effort to define the process of decision making.

Definitions[edit]

Committee is any formal group of people who each have voting rights. Member is any individual with voting rights who belongs to the Committee.

Procedures[edit]

  • Any Member may propose a motion by sending an email clearly marked as such to the Committee email list.
  • The voting period must be clearly stated in the email and must be a minimum of 7 days from the date of posting.
  • Members may vote at any time before the deadline via email to the Committee email list, and this email must contain the email in which the motion was proposed.
  • Votes must be either "+1" for a vote in favour of the motion; "-1" for a vote against the motion; or "0" or "Abstain" for a "neutral vote".
  • For a motion to pass at least two-thirds (rounded up if the number of Members is not a multiple of 3) of Members must cast votes. Neutral votes are counted as being votes for this purpose.
  • For a motion to pass at least two-thirds (rounded up if the number of votes cast is not a multiple of 3) of the votes cast are in favour of the motion. - Neutral votes are ignored completely for this calculation.
  • Motions will pass or fail as soon as enough votes have been cast to determine the outcome.
