Sorry that was dumb on my part. I thought the GA was a meeting not a
vote. 

You guys may really want to read over the SPI bylaws. They have already
done a lot of this work for you.

http://www.spi-inc.org/corporate/by-laws

Granted SPI is far from perfect and they do have significant issues but
their overall goal and the by-laws themselves in general are pretty
darn good.

SPI uses the Condorcet method of voting. Which at first I thought was
dumb but using it for a while it seems reasonably fair.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake

P.S. For those that don't know, I am the PostgreSQL SPI Liaison. I was
the SPI Liaison for a year before winning a seat on board. So now I am
also a Director for SPI.
