=== Items Requiring Votes ===

== Voting members and voting ==
  
All tickets requiring a vote have two phases:
+
A subset of the SIG will be voting members and be able to vote on issues brought up for a vote before the SIG.
  
#The discussion phase: This happens at the meeting following the ticket being filed, and optionally at the discretion of the ticket filer or meeting chair, additional meetings to allow for sufficient discussion.
+
Voting members are anyone who is an operator in any of the 4 above channels.  
#The voting phase: Once at least one discussion meeting has happened (and optionally additional ones), votes will be taken in the ticket and the next meeting, after which the issue shall be decided and the ticket closed.
+
  
The ticket will be updated noting when each phase is in progress.
+
New operators/voting members are nominated by filing a ticket and asking to join. Voting members have 7 days to vote,  majority vote determines outcome.
  
At the discretion of the nominator and/or the primary chair for the meeting, voting can be extended before or at either of these meetings. The ticket should include the discussion meeting date and voting meeting date. At this time meetings are held on Thursdays, a ticket filed on Tuesday or Wednesday does not have to be discussed at that Thursday's meeting at the discretion of the nominator and/or the primary chair for that week's meeting. Should the primary chair of the discussion or voting meeting feel more time is needed they have the option of extending the discussion period there by changing the vote date, this should be noted in the ticket description.
+
Existing voting members can be removed in roughly the same way as the process to add them. Inactive members can be removed if their is a majority vote to do so here.
  
The community will have a chance to discuss items requiring a vote with the members of the irc-support-operators FAS group in an open forum at the discussion meeting prior to casting their vote.
+
In other cases (aside from promoting/removing members), broad consensus should be attempted first and if no clear consensus can be reached a vote can be held on the issue or change.
  
After the discussion meeting the ticket will be voted on by using the ticket system and the final voting meeting. A +1 means a yay (yes) and a -1 means a nay (no) with a +0 ([http://www.thefreedictionary.com/abstain abstain]) option. Any final issues should be brought up on the ticket during this period.
+
when and if other channels wish to join the sig, rules for that can be added.
  
At the final voting meeting, all votes from the ticket will be tallied and members of the irc-support-operators FAS group will be queried for votes if they have not posted their vote or if they would like to change their posted vote on the ticket. These ticket items should be brought up as the last order of business for the final voting meeting before the open floor. Wherein the ticket is either passed or denied based on the majority of +1/-1 votes, abstaining (+0/-0) votes not being counted. In the case of a tie the sig should ask the FPL to either have the final word or appoint a non-voting member to do so for them. The final voting meeting is not a time for discussion, all discussion should be taken care of at the discussion meeting or on the nomination ticket prior to the final voting meeting.
+
== #fedora-ops channel ==
  
=== Operator/Voting Member Tickets ===
+
The #fedora-ops channel is for coordinating between operators of the other 3 channels. Operators in those 3 channels are welcome to join and idle in #fedora-ops. Other folks can be allowed by nomination from an op and a second from any other operator. Those not in the above 2 groups are welcome to join and discuss an issue or concern from the other 3 channels, but will be asked to then depart after their issue or concern is noted.
  
New operators/voting members are nominated by existing members of the irc-support-operators FAS group using the ticketing system. If you are interested in one of these positions please contact an existing member to sponsor and nominate you. Please include the nominee's primary IRC nick and what channels they are being nominated for in the ticket subject. Nominees are encouraged to be active on the ticket for their nomination and to attend the discussion meeting so they can respond to any questions or address any concerns if they are able, this is not required.
