My personal analysis comes to the conclusion that the voting
formula/voting system needs to be redesigned before next election. The
current one has serious flaws related to the oppose option. It is both
open to "smart" voting (manipulation) and it also gives undue weight to
the oppose option.
There are several ways a redesign can be done, from keeping the SNO but
with a modified formula to changing it to one of the options Chris
mention or others.
With the set up of a standing committee there will be ample time to work
with this issue before next election. And I expect it will be done with
involving the community on lists and meta

It would be good if the voting system was built to
give a clear next best
option in these circumstances.
Simple positive voting, single transferable vote, and proportional Schulze
would all do that.
I wonder if there's any movement on the idea of a standing election
committee to consider now how the next community election will be set up?
