The X.Org Foundation has been operating under a set of Provisional By-laws since it's formation. Recently, these By-laws have undergone a thorough review, which has resulted in a major revision that better reflects the organization and how it operates.
The Board of Directors is pleased to present these revised By-laws for public comment and discussion. All discussion shall take place on the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, which is open to everyone. Anyone interested in commenting on these By-laws is asked to join the mailing list at http://x.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/bylaws.
The discussion period for this review shall run through 10 September 2006. The By-laws will be submitted to the members for approval in the upcoming election which will be held later this year.
ProposedBylaws.pdf Revisions to the By-laws have been made as a result of the public review. The revised version is available here
- ProposedBylawsRedlinedvs20060811.pdf Unless there a critical issue, this will most likely be the version that will be put up for ratification as part of the upcoming election.
A couple of very minor editorial and formatting changes have been made. The version that will appear on the ballot is here
- ProposedBylawsRevised20061029.pdf This version was approved on 14 November 2006
The Board of Directors is also ready to present a revised Membership Agreement for public review. The discussion period for the Membership Agreement will end 20 October 2006. Discussion shall take place on the bylaws mailing list described above.
- ProposedMembershipAgreement.pdf Discussion is still ongoing for the Membership Agreement, so a seperate ballot will be opened for it once the discussion and review have concluded.
