That is certainly a better course of action, than a subset of
maintainers having a meeting, that discriminates against other
maintainers by force of physical location, and then declaring "things
'must' change".

However, you are still not being properly considerate of the full community.
The "community" affected here, is the ENTIRE OpenCSW community: both
maintainers *and* users.
Therefore, we should prepare a proper poll that allows for full
participation of the entire community affected.

The poll wording needs to also be openly reviewed for some period of
time, to ensure inclusiveness and fairness.

Are you volunteering to write the initial wording, or are you
requesting someone else draft it?
