The bylaws no longer cover everything the foundation is doing (process for board re-elections, local chapters, sponsorship relations, status of charter and regular members) and ideally they should.

Our bylaws are also default corporate boilerplate and User:JoWalsh Jo thinks it would be great to have a human-readable version that actually reflects what we are doing, we can be later translated into attorney-speak, rather than something legally perfect but not actually mapping to what we are doing.

Names of people interested in helping to update the bylaws
