Deleting or Adding a Milestone
Because of the significant effort put in over many years by the CHM Storage SIG in developing the milestone list it will not be changed without significant agreement that a change is necessary
Deleting a milestone:
Start a thread on the event’s page stating in detail the reason this event should not be on the list.
· Adding a milestone::
While on the “Other Interesting Events” page "Add a new page" (button at bottom of index on right side of page) fully describing the event and start a thread on this new page stating the reasons it should be added. Don’t worry about format or placement, an administrator will fix it.
When there is a majority support of at least 4 participants an adminstrator will schedule a vote using an online voting service. Since the SIG was basically a group of 12 persons, it will take a 2/3rds majority of at least 18 voters to add or delete.
