Does this need consensus?

Here’s a little chart we cooked up to help answer that very question.  Consensus is what we strive for.  It is not a victory, rather, it is an achievable solution.  A GA, as the decision making body, is often asked for consensus on even the most minor of decisions.  There are a lot of actions that can be taken autonomously by individuals or groups to further a variety of projects.  Discussions of solutions can happen any where, any time.  A key to having a smooth GA is facilitating proper proposals.

really, just ask, "am I acting for the whole of the group?"
