Advance notice for membership vote on BU Improvement Processes
The technical BUIPS listed below will have all reached the end of their 14-day period for comment by 29th January 2016.
Voting on the 29th will be by marking the BUIP threads as open and inviting replies in each or this thread, OR by provision of a voting form on the BitcoinUnlimited.info website, if this facility is available before that date. To be confirmed.
The rules allow a 24-hour window for voting. However, votes can be made earlier than that date by replying in this thread, and these will be submitted to the Secretary for counting. If you make an early vote you can change your mind by deleting your post and re-posting.
Votes are yes/no or for/against.
Votes can be in the same message e.g. "yes x,y,z" or "against a,b,c"
The BUIP numbers should be mentioned.
Where there is a clear set of options i.e. for BUIP004 & BUIP013 then the option choices will be those listed in the BUIP first post.
The detail of the technical changes are up to the Developer and the author of the BUIP to hammer out.
