I realize that you probably wanted to say "at least one person which is
not me". Sorry if I got you wrong. But I still think this is the wrong
thing to do (apart from the fact that there is not even a second sponsor
for the proposal as far as I can see it and it is thus not clear to me
that there will be anything to vote about if we followed our process
First, the social contract is already ratified. If nobody says anything
against it on tor-internal it would mean it would be ratified again by
rough consensus. Why should we do that twice by the same method just
Second, you get all the possible downsides I mentioned in my other mail
if just one person says "no". That still seems not worth it (it adds to
voting fatigue, possibly produces contraditory outomces etc. etc.)
