Akshay started a proposal Wed 15 Apr 2015

Accept Pirate Praveen as a permanent member Closed Thu 16 Apr 2015

Outcome
by Akshay Wed 26 Apr 2017

2 agreed of 2 required, Pirate Praveen is now a permanent member.

He was an initial member (including two previous experiments of Pirate Movement and Pirate Party) and promoted pirate ideas though campaigns like pirate cycling and diaspora yatra. This brought mainstream attention, reach among the public and brought in many new members.

@akshay voting is not required for associate membership. Just stating acceptance to constitution is enough.

He has stated his disagreement with the constitution. If he is convinced and accepts the constitution or we are convinsed to change the constitution, we can reconsider his application.

He's been around and engaged more than I have. Who am I to say no?

I had previously agreed. But Praveen's comment makes me disagree for now - subject to further clarity.

He has clarified his position, he only needs clarity on how we plan to ensure rights we recognize.

@akshay just make sure associate members are added to subgroup.

Vidyut Wed 22 Apr 2015

@praveenarimbrathod I hear your point. Frankly, the constitution needs more work. Why not extend the voting period pending the changes he suggests to the constitution or his disagreements, and we can update the constitution if needed or make a more informed refusal?

In my view, our constitution is very immature at this point and is not really a very refined yardstick for who is worthy of shaping this cause.

Perhaps situations like these can be converted into opportunities by initiating a dialogue and simultaneously refining the constitution to include or explicitly exclude things as our own political vision matures.

Edit: Also, this vote is confusing. If agreement with the constitution is mandatory, then how can membership be put to vote without the agreement?

PP

Pirate Praveen Thu 23 Apr 2015

Yes, we can change the constitution if we have a consensus. Let them propose amendments and we will consider them.

Pirate Praveen Thu 23 Apr 2015

@vidyut, Balu initially did not say he has issues with the constitution. Once voting started he said, he don't agree, then he clarified he only needs clarity on something.

I know Akshay from Diaspora Yatra and some other privacy-and-free-software related activities. I believe having him as a permanent member will do good to Indian Pirates.
