Publicly recording board member votes
Many members are requesting that board votes have how members voted recorded for publicly minuted items.
Survey of other open data/geospatial organization practices
- Wikimedia: Records how each board member voted since 2012 (https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Foundation_board_manual#Resolutions_and_voting)
- OpenDefinition Advisory Council: Votes are done in public
- OSGeo: Records votes in published full meeting logs
Changing this would mean changing the rules of order.
Proposed change: Change "If votes are taken, the minutes will contain a tally of votes." to "If votes are taken, the minutes will contain the board member votes."
