svn-org commit: r7 - trunk

From: <rooneg_at_tigris.org>
Date: 2006-06-20 22:45:37 CEST

Author: rooneg
Date: Tue Jun 20 13:45:37 2006
New Revision: 7

Modified:
   trunk/bylaws.html

Log:
Tweaks to the bylaws based on review from Karen Sandler at SFLC.

This is only the changes I felt were uncontroversial, more substantial
stuff will follow via changes sent to the organization mailing list.

* bylaws.html
  (III-2-a): Refer to IV-3, not IV-5.
  (III-7): Refer to III-10, not III-11.
  (III-10-D): Don't refer to an assistant secretary, we don't actually
   have one.
  (III-14-C): Remove the word "otherwise", it was unnecessary.
  (III-15): Refer to III-14-B, not III-14-C.
  (III-16-B-2): Don't capitalize "means".
  (IV-3): Remove useless wording.
  (IV-5): Refer to section 4.
  (VI-1): Capitalize "director".
  (VI-1-B-1): Simplify.
