Proposed governance structure

Solid, Jun 23, 2019

Some interesting dialogue in Tim Berners-Lee's Social Linked Data (Solid) project. As the community has increased in size, governance has become more of an issue. It doesn't help that aspects of the project have bogged down, with decisions being left unresolved for years, while at the same time there are numerous depreciated and obsolete implementations. This proposal posits three major elements - a development team, a panel, and a decision-making mechanism. Long-time developers aren't exactly happy about the idea of a panel, but it does raise the question, "who represents the users?" See also this issue and this comment in Gitter that drew my attention to the issue.
