According to a recent posting from Philip Van Hoof, he suggests that Gnome split off from the GNU Project and proposes a vote. He has been informed he will need 5% of members to agree for there to be a vote put forth. At the same time David Schlesinger (on the Gnome Advisory Board) has agreed on a vote.

Stormy Peters claims she doesn’t agree with this but then gives everyone instructions on how to achieve this goal. She mentions that roughly 20 members are needed to agree.

Note: David Neary (who doesn’t agree) brought up the fact that he wanted to have a vote put forth in the past for a different issue and was required to have 10% of members to agree to start a vote. Stormy is only able to find numbers that point to 10% as well.
