How do we get a vote? So, it's quite interesting, we've started out thinking that we've have a sort of straight majority, you know, for and against on each thing, but, with a long of tail of participation, you have a few people who're very active, and a lot of people who're right down the end and sort of contribute once and go away. And so that doesn't really work, because how do you decide what's needed for that majority? So we use a slightly different system which is a sort of kind of based on a blackballing approach which is where you need a certain number of people in order to accept change, but you only need one person to block a change. So if somebody thinks something's incompatible, or not written well enough, then they can block that change. Then we work through together, we discuss, to try and work that through and remove the block, and then get it accepted.
