Please review "Amendments" section of the Code of Conduct

Matthew Flaschen-2
Please take this as a final opportunity to do review/suggest
changes/etc. to the Amendments section of the draft Code of Conduct.
This text has been up for a while, but I recently put in a small
proposed change to make it harder for the Committee to veto amendments.

This is the last section.  After it's approved, the Code of Conduct will
become policy, and the Amendments section will specify how future
changes to the policy work.

* Current text:
https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Code_of_Conduct/Draft&oldid=2389930#Page:_Code_of_Conduct.2FAmendments 
(under "Page: Code of Conduct/Amendments")
* Discussion:
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Code_of_Conduct/Draft#New_proposal_for_amendments

The approval discussion hasn't started yet.  It will be next and I will
send out a separate email.

Thanks,

Matt Flaschen

P.S. You can still participate in deciding whether to approve "Creation
and renewal of the Committee" at

As noted on the talk page, my understanding is that in past discussions
about approving specific sections of this draft code of conduct, you
assured participants that there would be a final vote on the full and
complete draft text. After these discussions were closed, you're now
seeking to cancel a final vote on the code of conduct text, considering
the section-level approvals to be sufficient.

I don't see how this is acceptable. In my opinion, either the previously
approved sections must be revisited, with the new understanding that there
will be no final vote, or the final vote on the text should be held, as
previously discussed and advertised.
