I think it's this one.
And if it is, the issue is "How should the DNSO's Board members be
nominated by the General Assembly."
The possibilities so far are:
(1) the support of one person places you on the ballot;
(2) the support of more than one person (leave it at
that for the moment) places you on the ballot;
I've given my two cents about why I favor the latter (efficiency,
produces candidates with proven support from the community, makes the
nomination task a meaningful role for the GA). I also disagree with your
conclusion, on the main GA list, that the NC could still meet certain
minimum thresholds. For one thing, a simple rule that no GA member could
demonstrate nomination support for more than one candidate would make
votes more prudently exercised.
Leaving aside the textual analysis of the phrase "Nominated by a member
of the GA" (about which we appear to have reached reasonable but
different conclusions), let's assume that the process is open to our
definition here. What should it be?
