A .LRN motion is a formal statement of a proposal or question to the .LRN Core Team for consideration and action.
Steps in Presenting .LRN Motions
Items are presented by .LRN members to the .LRN Core Team in the .LRN Motions Forum. The title must have the motion number, "Proposed", and a short description in it. Example: ".LRN Motion #1 (Proposed): .LRN Motion Rules"
A .LRN Core Team (LCT) member then must second motion. The title must have "Seconded" in it. Example: ".LRN Motion #1 (Seconded): .LRN Motion Rules"
Debate. Anyone may post a thread followup. Thread followups must directly address the original .LRN Motion.
Any LCT member may vote Approval or Disapproval of a Motion. These replies can be titled "Seconded", "Thirded", or "Vetoed".
Once we have a final status for a TIP, the original title is edited to reflect that.
".LRN Motion #1 (Approved): .LRN Motion Rules"
All LCT members must subscribe to the forum.
If a new Motion gets Seconded and Thirded and not Vetoed in the first week after posting, it is Approved. If it gets at least one Veto, the proposer must summarize objections and call for a full vote in a reply titled "Call for Full Vote". Previous Second/Third/Veto votes are then null, and the LCT members vote with replies titled "Approve" or "Disapprove". If, after two weeks of full voting, the Motion has two thirds approval, it is Approved. If not, it is Disapproved.
After a Motion is Approved or Disapproved, the thread is closed to new posts.
If a Motion is approved, a ticket is entered into the bugtracker under the proposer's name.
