What term would you use to convey the method of voting that SPI is trying
to achieve?

Debian voter turn out for elections seems to be around 22-28% unless it's a
major election. For example, the leader election was about 50% (give or
take). Since the board is supposed to do most of the grunt work, if it's
not of the same caliber of interest, more discussion needs to go into it or
the propsal needs to be reconsidered.

Please cc all mailing list replies to me, also.
