OpenNIC has, for a very long time, used the mailing list. For a few short years we moved to a Drupal-based (I think... maybe I'm wrong though) CMS website which included a membership system & voting. The voting was used for a few years but voter turnout was generally lower than than the mailing list IIRC.

imo, the mailing list works, but we are a generally democratic organization, so if the bulk of the membership wants us to move to a voting system, than it is possible.

Hi all:

At this time opennic has 3 topics to work with:

1) Emercoin peering
2) Drop ING
3) OpenNIC foundation

IMO OpenNIC needs an effective vote system and collaboration framework
is not enough to achieve consensus with IRC and maillist...

does someone knows about opensource for each of them?

I can host those applications if needed, and also we need to integrate with opennic's LDAP

In light of the recent discussion concerning the fate of .ing, I believe it
is time, now, to establish a legal entity for OpenNIC in the form of a
foundation (much like the Debian Foundation).  This foundation would serve
as OpenNIC's advocacy arm, a legal entity empowered to speak for OpenNIC
and to accept donations in order to further OpenNIC's cause.

If this is approved by the membership, I further propose a working group of
active OpenNIC members to draft the necessary paperwork, charters,
bylaws,etc. to set this in motion.  I would like to give this working group
the mandate to proceed with incorporation of the OpenNIC Foundation on
behalf of the OpenNIC membership.
