ISSUE-166: How should appeals for decisions not mentioned in the Process Document be documented

Appeals of Decisions not in the Process

How should appeals for decisions not mentioned in the Process Document be documented

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Process Document
Raised by:
Steve Zilles
Opened on:
2015-07-12
Description:
Recently (last December) a policy for relicensing unfinished specifications was promulgated by the Director:
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Member/w3c-ac-members/2014OctDec/0049.html

This policy has a provision for appealing a decision to relicense or to not relicense.

"Appeal

If the Director decides not to relicense, the Advisory Committee may appeal the decision. If the Director decides to relicense, the Advisory Committee may appeal the decision only if there was a Formal Objection. In both cases, W3C follows the AC appeal process."

This policy is not, however, part of the Process Document, but is part of W3C Policies.

How should the existence of this appeal process be shown in the Process Document?

Note Issue-165 has an impact on resolving this issue.
