[maemo-community] Referenda started!

Hi all,

Voting is open for the 3 referenda around the election procedure for
Maemo community council elections.

A wiki page has been created for each referendum, where arguments for &
against each of the options can be listed. For the moment, these pages
are skeletons, but feel free to debate in the Talk page, and perhaps add
some arguments for & against in the main page (but they will be heavily
moderated to avoid flame-wars).

A reminder of the 3 referenda:

1. Election procedure for the next Maemo community council elections:

The choices are the status quo in the election procedure document (25
karma + 3 month), or removing all requirements. The council is
recommending a vote to remove requirements.

2. Election procedure for future Maemo community council elections:

The choices are the status quo, lowering the karma requirement to 10,
and maintaining a 3 month requirement for accounts, lowering the
requirement to 10 *or* 1 year since account creation, whichever comes
first, or removing all requirements of karma and account age. The
council is recommending lowering the karma requirement to 10, and
maintaining a 3 month account creation limit.

3. Counting method:

Three choices are proposed: first past the post, preferential voting
using single transferrable vote, or reweighted range voting.

Voting is open now, until next Monday, the 23rd of February.
