Could we have some clarification, please?
1. What web-servers would the coop be administering? Would the coop
become responsible for the (privately-owned) servers that are currently
being used to serve UK static pages on a round-robin basis? Would the
coop be responsible for the Ahimsa servers, which are presumably still
serving for places like Italy, Nantes, Ambazonia? Would the coop be
responsible for the planned publishing server?
2. Why do people need consensus from indymedia to set up a
webhosting co-op? Surely the only time we'd need consensus is
if indymedia were deciding to _use_ that co-op?
[Liaison adds: wouldn't it defeat any purpose there might be in making
the coop completely separate from IMC, if there was an archived,
concensual decision by IMC to establish the coop?]
3. There is ambiguity between clauses 3 and 6, regarding which I forward
friendly amendment to point 3 or 6 :
purpose: trying to make the decision making framework for the
co-op more obvious (as mentioned in your mail).
(changes between |s)
* 3 That the membership of the co-op is open and that decision
making is on a |consensus| basis.
* 6 That we need to consult Co-operatives UK about the
management structure that best reflects the |one person one
vote| decision making process.
I'd be happier with consensus, but as I'm not likely to have
the time to be involved with the coop, I'm happy to leave that
decision up to ppl that are ...
