We did this a few years ago to get rid of a WG co-chair who'd lost the confidence of their WG. > Maybe: > "Upon receiving a request to step down from <N> community members, the NomCom and(/or?) the WGCC decide if the Chair has to step down or not." Nope. I think the community has to take that decision by consensus. Nobody else. If the community is screaming for someone's head on a stick, asking the NomCom or WGCC to make a judgement about that would/should be a no-op. So there's nothing gained by introducing that redundant step or steps. > What is a "community member"? > I would probably define this as someone who has attended a RIPE meeting in the last <N> years, or with relevant participation in mailing lists, acknowledged by WG Chairs. That question is the start of an infinite rat-hole Carlos. Best stay out of it.
