Subject Re: Graduation Resolutions Should Not Include Project Bylaws Clause
Date Mon, 03 Sep 2018 01:03:16 GMT

I agree with Justin.

I know from experience what the “defaults” are, but to a newcomer, it’s likely anything
but clear. The project-specific ones you reference make no reference to being bylaws, hence
my description of them as “policy.”

If we could clearly delineate between Foundation Bylaws and Project Bylaws, with both preferably
outlined on a single page, I think that would help resolve some of the confusion.

all cases, it can fall down in situations where it’s probably most needed.
