Hi! It’s nice to see progress and improved clarity in these things.
Now, I haven’t participated mostly for lack of time. However, it wasn’t entirely clear to me that there was a proposal that required action. So there might be room for more clarity.
I’ve followed the Discourse discussions at a high level, so I am aware that a proposal process was created and agreed upon, and I take it that this was one such proposal.
But the proposal itself is awash in discussion, and the casual observer cannot be certain if they are looking at a final proposal or not, without investing significantly in the discussion. For instance, the proposal starts with
Here is the formal proposal: will start the poll for consent decision within a few days since this has already been discussed quite a bit.
Newest proposal for team agreements (with msiep’s suggestion incorporated)
Ironically, this introduction, which indicates some sort of temporal locality (“Newest proposal”), makes it unclear which version of “now” is being referred to. Is it today’s now? Or some other now? Is this really the final version? Does “discussed quite a bit” refer to the discussion that follows, or some other discussion?
I do now have some extra time to spend on Snowdrift, but I’m going to do my best to avoid participating in these meta discussions. If there’s some input that some other team needs from me, I’ll do my best to participate, but can we find a more concrete way to distribute the text of proposals?
