  4. Discussion Topics
    1. UTG governance, continued
      1. Paul: Do we think that opening this up to wider voting will give us more balance and harmony? Or will the super users provide the balance? Or do we think that there should be a veto ability or the ability to jam it from going forward?
      2. Wayne: There should be an appeal process rather than a veto. Lorraine: There could be both. Paul: An appeal would go to the TSC
      3. Continued work on draft precepts
      4. Decision to see how things go before we determine if a veto process is needed, given that we have the weighted voters and an appeal process
