[Draft; candidate for promotion. /Discussion of this page.]

Membership

Membership in the BioPAX working group is open to all interested parties.

How decisions are made

Decisions are made by consensus at telephone conferences and face-to-face meetings. Decisions are made by those attending, with proxies allowed. There are no votes and no quorum.

Consensus is essentially unanimity but implies a commitment on everyone's part to respond to issues and iterate until agreement is reached.

For reasons of efficiency, the group may give limited decision-making ability to committees and individuals.

Conduct of meetings

Meetings must be announced with adequate lead time.

As a matter of courtesy, any important issues must be listed on a meeting's agenda ahead of time so that members have an opportunity to be involved in decisions around issues that they care about.

Decisions made at meetings must be recorded in the wiki or other approved forum.
