initial actions, bylaws, 'elections', etc, are what elfur has.

when i say 'we didnt get approved', its because work on the various
things that needed to get done didn't. bylaws being approved(or finished
for that matter), the lack of a 'membership', etc. not to dig up any old
wounds here, but i stopped working on it when some people didn't like
the way i wrote up a couple documents. no one else picked it up, it
'officially' never happened(do you remember signing anything?), and
thats why i said in the linked email above that evolt didn't get
approved - the process was never finished, hence we never got approved.
and in case it comes up, i'm not interested in hearing perceptions on
who's fault that was.

i put a fair amount of time/$ in with my lawyer to create an initial set
of bylaws to were tailored to evolt.org(irc voting, pgp voting, etc),
and for the last 9 months, they've sat around collecting dust(for which
i also share part of the blame).

so i hope you understand how it would make me feel when only after I
leave are you prepared to finally work on the documents i put the time/$

if anyone thinks thats unreasonable, please let me know.
