[Osmf-talk] How to vote to match your view

You are opposing term limits. It's not "this proposal vs. better one",
it's term limits or status quo. You (and the rest of the Board) had a
week to discuss and fix Simon's resolutions, and three weeks to come
with an alternative proposal (and it's the Board who set the deadline).

This behaviour, "do perfectly or do nothing", is what have been
hindering OSM development for past years, and I hope the new Board
would actively oppose that. We are not a multimillion industry that
would lose stocks because of non-perfect actions.

Passing these resolutions is exactly the way to attract more good
people to do things. It's not like Board members who step down
suddenly would lose all will to help OSM because of that.
