The Voting system Community Group has been launched:
There has been lengthy and recurrent discussions about reforming the voting system for AB/TAG elections.
The current system is allegedly broken as it is stated by various members, but the AC is not willing to work on this unless someone comes up with a comprehensive explanation and proposal.
There are many alternatives:
* pick up one alternative voting system
* work on a tool to create simulation
* use this tool for **non official** ballot at the same time as an official ballot (which would be used with the current systen)
All of these items have been proposed in various email threads in w3c-ac-forum and public-w3process list, not repeating the links here for the sake of conciseness.
This group will not publish specifications.
This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2014-05-06 by Jean-Charles Verdie. The following people supported its creation: Jean-Charles Verdie, Robin Berjon, Virginie GALINDO, Brian Kardell, Daniel Glazman. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of its activities.
The group now has access to W3C-hosted services for email, blog, wikis, irc, tracking tools, and more. Read more about tools and services available by default and upon request.
