Subject: [council] Motion to Adopt Updated Council Operating Procedures


It is my understanding from our discussion yesterday that we had rough
consensus on voting to adopt the updated Council Operating Procedures,
but to state in the motion that certain areas remain outstanding (e.g.,
abstentions) and to require that those areas be priority work to be
completed by a date certain.

Two questions: 

1.  Is that correct? 

2.  What areas, other than abstentions, remain outstanding? 

I'll start drafting a substitute motion once I've heard back from enough
of you so that I'm comfortable I'm on the right track.
