When a proposal transitions to Dropped or Superseded state it should be moved under the Older SpecificationsIcebox grouping.


The proposal should be posted with a date by which the author would like to see the approval decision to be made. How much time is given to comment depends on the size and complexity of the proposed changes. Anything between 1 week and 3 weeks seems like a reasonable timespan. Driving the actual decisions should follow the lazy majority approach. If a discussion is still going strong once it’s approaching the initially set date, the author(s) might consider extending the time for discussion. This should happen explicitly and be announced in the email that starts the [DISCUSS] thread.
