The Bylaws page is modified using the following:

  1. Making the subsections wiki headers, this allows specific sections (4.3.6, etc.)
    • This makes the TOC more complicated, but is fixed by <div class="toclimit-2">__TOC__</div> and changes to Common.css
    • However, doing this also removes the visibility of section numbering, but is fixed by adding the NumberedHeadings extension and adding __NUMBEREDHEADINGS__
    • This makes the sections different font sizes, but is fixed by changes to Common.css
  2. Removing section edit links by using __NOEDITSECTION__
  3. Edits on February 14, 2019, by Frank Taylor

Toward Consensus[edit]

We need consensus from board members on the Bylaws. This section is for noting that.

I’m good with the bylaws, except that I think we should have measurable actions we plan to take for section 2.3. Those measurements and action specifics don’t need to be in the bylaws, and probably shouldn’t be, but perhaps should be linked from it. Examples: 2.3.1-commit X patches to MW core, Y of which close out preexisting Phabricator tasks.

2.3.2 is what we were talking about with Ext:Duplicator. We need to formalize what we plan to do with it

Right, putting the specific things we're working on in the Bylaws wouldn't be appropriate. How about updating the bylaws to point to a specific way to track our current activities? --User:MarkAHershberger(talk) 14:13, 23 April 2019 (EDT)
