Can you please +1/0/-1 the changes to the Strategy Document relating to 
the change from Xubuntu Project Lead to Xubuntu Council [1]

_As with all Team votes - only votes by members of Xubuntu Team[2] will 
be counted._

The change removes completely the section relating to Xubuntu Project 
Lead and is replaced with the following:


    The Xubuntu Council (later: council) is responsible for overseeing
    the development direction of Xubuntu and enablingthe community to
    work withXubuntu as smoothly as possible. The council serves a term
    of four releases/two years at a time, ending with an LTS release to
    allow long-term planning.

    The xubuntu-council Launchpad team consists of the council members.
    The xubuntu-council team is the administrator for all other Xubuntu
    Launchpad teams, giving the council full administration access for
    the Xubuntu teams.


    The council consists of 3 members, who are chosenby a _CIVS_vote.
    All members in the _Xubuntu team_and/or direct members of any
    _moderated subteams_can be nominated, either by themselves or
    anybody else in the Xubuntu community with the nominees consent. The
    same group of people is eligible to vote.

    If a council member becomes inactive for 6 months, the member shall
    be replaced by a new council member for the remainder of their term,
    elected by a new CIVS vote.

    The council will decide on a chair for the whole council term. The
    chair will act as the official point of contact for Xubuntu.

    *Council operation*

    The council is expected to take action or respond to any issue
    raised within 2 weeks. If appropriate and fair, the first action can
    be postponement.

    If at any time amajority of the Xubuntu team considers the actions
    of the council harmful for the project, the issue at hand should be
    raised to the council for reconsideration. If a resolution can't be
    found, the council should consult the the Ubuntu Community Council
    and other appropriate Ubuntu community teams. Similarly, if the
    council can't reach a consensus even after consulting the Xubuntu
    team, they should consult the Ubuntu Community Council and other
    appropriate Ubuntu community teams.
