    4143 * Quorum: The Leadership Committee requires a quorum of 50% for decisions to be valid.
    4244 * Process: Votes may be made by email, phone, or in person. A good-faith attempt will always be made to reach unanimity. If the LC is not unanimous, then proposals must be approved by more than 2/3 of the leadership committee members who vote. Abstentions are allowed and count toward quorum.
    4345 * Timing: Proposals are considered approved if 2/3 of the LC members approve it or if 2/3 of quorum approve it by the end of the vote deadline. If neither condition is met, then the proposal is not approved.
    44  * Re-submission: proposals that fail due to lack of quorum may be re-submitted un-changed. Proposals not approved due to lack of votes may be re-submitted only if changes are made. 
     46 * Re-submission: proposals that fail due to lack of quorum may be re-submitted unchanged.  This restarts the proposal as a new submission.  If a proposal is  not approved because it was disapproved by 1/3 or more of the voting LC members, it may not be re-submitted to the same LC until substantive changes are made that are intended to address the concerns of the disapproving LC members.
