At the end of the day for me there is a slight preference for a 1+2 
solution, but as this is a purely procedural and administrative position 
the end result is less important.

I do have a concern related to process.  I am not in agreement with the 
ALAC position that we cannot evolve positions over time or that humming 
in a physical meeting is any better way of canvassing the crowd than 
doodle polling.  To me, the reconsideration of this position is not 
"ad-hoc" as it represented the desire of the majority of those that 
commented.  Here we get to my largest frustration.  We are not serving 
or have not been appointed by our various communities to be silent.  We 
need the active participation of all members.  I can understand that 
participation in Auguest may be somewhat spotty, but this cannot be the 
case as we go into the balance of our process.

I would like us to return to previous proposals about online processes 
that I and others have made to agree on how decisions can be made 
pursuant to which processes.
