\agendaitem{Leaving council members}
-\index{council!members!retiring}\index{slacker mark}
-
-Change to council \glep{39} to cover when a Council member is no longer part
- of the Gentoo project (the reason/rhyme is irrelevant). The idea is to
- streamline slightly the bureaucracy (even if new wording is more verbose).
-
-Old wording: ``If a council member who has been marked a slacker misses any
-further meeting
- (or their appointed proxy doesn't show up), they lose their position and a
- new election is held to replace that person. The newly elected council member
- gets a 'reduced' term so that the yearly elections still elect a full
-group.''
-
-New wording:
- ``If a council member who has been marked a slacker misses any further meeting
- (or their appointed proxy doesn't show up), they lose their position.
- Whenever a member of the Council loses their position (the reason is
- irrelevant; they could be booted for slacking or they resign or ...), then
- the next person in line from the previous Council election is offered the
- position. If they decline, it is offered to the next person in line, and so
- forth. If they accept and the current Council unanimously accepts the new
- person, they get the position with a 'reduced' term such that the yearly
- elections still elect a full group. If the Council does not accept that
- person, then a new election is held to choose a new member.''

+\glep{44} is looking good and we'll work on getting the remaining packages
+fixed. The idea is to have it in place in the 2007.0 timeframe. For
+unmaintained packages without a valid SRC_URI but with files on the Gentoo
+mirrors the SRC_URI can point there. Unmaintained packages without a valid
+SRC_URI and without files on the Gentoo mirrors will need to be removed.
