Some changes below as were suggested. Please speak up if you do not agree
with this.


It has been proposed that evolt.org's volunteers are restructured into the
following groups:






And with a parent group (SC - Steering Committee) made up of 2 members of
each subgroup.

Each group shall decide how to elect their two representatives (+1 voting,
voting application, whatever). Said reps should be encouraged to cycle at a
predefined period to be decided by each group individually.

Volunteers should serve within a maximum of three groups so as to maximise
their efficiency. They cannot serve as a rep for more than one group
concurrently, nor serve on the SC for more than 6 continuous months as a
representative of the same group. This will be a requirement that applies to
each group.

Reps who find that non-evolt.org responsibilities lessen their available
time should be encouraged to pass on their representation (again, by some
kind of vote within the group). It should not be seen as anything other than
"giving someone else a chance". It is important that a representative,
whenever possible, is the most capable and productive contributor. A
representative, taking the opportunity to pass on the position, should call
for a re-vote/election, and not simply pass the role onto a person of their

Also, as a general guideline, rights and responsibilities (where relevant --
Content, Admin, Development specifically) should be based (as currently) on
ability and trust/reputation within the community. Exact requirements (entry
barriers) will be decided by each group.

Should there be few major objections to this revised plan, I would suggest
that we
continue with the CaseStudies on the wiki (especially the volunteer names at
the bottom of each) so that people can make it clear where they see
themselves being useful. After that, create the relevant lists, populate
them, and let each group form their guidelines/processes/style. Each group
will create a profile of their responsibilities as an initial task.
