Suggestions to have productive discussions about governance?

I don’t think there is anything wrong, as such, with systems like RfCs. Just that we’re dealing with a highly complex social system here, as in any forum. If we are all happy with the outcome, fine – but Doug isn’t, and I tend to agree that more diversity would be a real advantage. If some system, good as it may be in theory, isn’t resulting in the diversity (or other good quality) that we agree we want, then surely it’s a good idea to try something different. When I say “complex” I’m following in the footsteps of such as Dave Snowden and his Cynefin framework – if a problem is complex, you can’t solve it analytically, rather you have to try and see what works. If ActivityPub works well in practice, then sure, let’s keep it. Though why there is a rival – xAPI – I never quite fathomed.
