Dear Gaius, under 7. Old business paragraph 1:
you forgot to mention:

[13:13] Lyubov Atheria: Last time, we discussed some changes to the private land sale policy and maximum number of allowed parcels

Could you please add that point to make clear what was voted on? I believe the lifting of ownership limits is an important action that should be mentioned.

Thank you!
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.

Thank you for pointing this out, Tan! That is a good point. I overlooked clarifying in the minutes because the "proposal posted on the forums" deleted that section of the old general covenant.

I am unable to edit my post and notes as they stand now, but I believe that your post is sufficient notice for whoever may read these minutes in the future.
