Hi yt-users! 

We've been working on updating our governance model for the yt-project to help our project grow, to codify our decision-making process, and to outline the governance structure of the project. I've submitted two companion pull requests with drafts of this updated documentation:


(you can see the contents of the pull requests if you click on the "files changed" tab; text highlighted in green is an addition and in red is removed) 

Our existing governance document is located at https://ytep.readthedocs.io/en/master/YTEPs/YTEP-1776.html

The first pull request is to a new governance repository, where our governance documentation will live separately from the YTEPs (yt enhancement proposals). This will allow us to maintain and minorly update our governance without having to update YTEP. The second pull request is to the YTEP repository and generally outlines the core values and ideas we want our governance structure to reflect. Hopefully all of the things I've listed in the YTEP are reflected in the governance docs.

As members of the community, I'd like to solicit feedback from all of you about these governance documents. Do these reflect our community values? Should we add anything? Do you feel everything is clear? Is this too much governance for our community right now? Is there something that's missing? As users, do you feel our governance structure is supportive to you, or do you think there is a way we could improve it to do so? 

Feel free to reply here or comment on the pull requests! Our governance will be better with your feedback.
