SUO: RE: Who can raise an issue?
What you suggest was the effect of my original proposal, since Project Leaders
will be voting members they are quite at liberty to raise issues
against their own deliverables. Indeed active project members
have often raised more issues than anyone else.
I can also see that that non voting members may dissappear and it
not be possible to get agreement on a resolution as a result - but
even voting members could dissappear (though they would no longer
then be voting members if we returned to the previous wording).
However you are the first person to say anything in favour of
restricting who can raise formal issues, so at present the wording is
