Product Council Action Items




  • Every decision, whether done through lazy consensus or vote, is recorded
  • Lazy consensus
    • Doesn’t mean unanimous consensus, but general agreement or silence
    • Done by individuals present in the conversation
    • Length of time for lazy consensus: give people a specific length of time to review, generally by the next PC meeting
    • Explicitly call out our decisions and record them
    • Should take into consideration the wishes of the whole FOLIO community
  • PC members only may request a formal vote, if they feel like lazy consensus is not occurring
  • Provide clarity when a formal vote needs to occur, e.g., A formal vote will now occur.
  • Provide a time-frame for voting
    • Should be provide a voting period with explicit time-period, generally no longer than by the next PC meeting
  • PC members can abstain (I was present for the vote, but chose not to vote; versus, I was not aware or present)
  • Over half of PC members must vote, majority of votes calls the decision
  • PC members may designate a proxy to vote in their place if needed
