Subject: [boost] RFC.. Steering Committee Bylaws Proposal

It has become clear to me, and some others, that the recent decisions of
the Steering Committee have exposed various problems with how the Steering
Committee operates. At CppCon I met with some of the Steering Committee and
expressed the concerns with them. I also explained, from my experience in
other organizations, how such issues are managed. The result of that is
that I will be proposing the Steering Committee adopt operating Bylaws. But
before formally presenting them to the Steering Committee I'd like get
feedback on them <http://bit.ly/2hI22DN>.
The Bylaws hopefully address some key issues that I feel are at the core of
the current problems:
* Decisions can be made without input from interested parties.
* Opaque selection of members.
* No recourse by library authors to correct problems.
This follows the original goals of the formation of the formation of
Steering Committee of being transparent and responsive <
