The RFC looks fine, with the only thing I'd add is that calling it
Democratic might be a misnomer. When only a select set of people are
permitted to vote, it's really an Oligarchy, although we may suggest
it's a Meritocratic Oligarchy since people are supposed to be selected
based on their merit as determined by contributions as opposed to
inheritance or anything of the sort.

Subject: Re: [tsc-devel] RFC: Voting rules draft
I'm currently lacking a home internet connection, but what I've read so far
Will these polls be available for non-members to see? We might want to keep in mind what
they think while voting, if a majority of them lean towards one option.
