Improve governance decision-making practicalities
I think decision making for constitution and collective agreements is a bit hard, as requires people to think about it intermittently for a long time.
The usual process right now seems to be:
- we discover in casual talk that something should be changed and dream about possible changes
- after some weeks or months, we come across this topic again and think we should finally implement these changes
- someone makes a draft of the changes needed, pushes it as branch and announces it in the kanthaus-governance Slack channel
- they ask for comments, set up a new decision on ukuvota and announce the proposal and voting periods
- they announce shortly before the proposal period is over
- they announce shortly before the voting period is over
- repeat from step 3 for the second decision making round
I have the feeling that steps 4, 5, 6 are quite easy to miss out, because the decision goes out of sight. I would be interested to improve this, so that we can keep our governance documents more in sync with what we have in mind.
Some more concrete points:
- have more reminders for Slack
- set up in-person meetings when proposal period starts, to get people more in touch with the proposal
