Compact in a nutshell[edit]

  • Purpose

"sudo room is an association of individuals (called "sudoers") established to collectively support a creative community and hacker space, with corresponding values" like openness, safespace, and do-ocracy.

  • Membership

To be a member you have to pay the monthly fee; but you don't have to be a member to participate. Necessarily some members are more member than others, there can always be a vote for: the facilitator, the scribe, and the exchequer.

  • Friends-with-benefits

Anything that sudo room owns, you can use. Plus we buy things together.

  • Decisions, decisions

Quorum is 10 people. Financial decisions, and endorsements need consensus. Termination of a member is 2/3 vote, after a tribunal.

  • Budget a la mode

Sudo room is a Voluntary Association seeking a suitable not-for-profit tax structure. Anyone can do the budget, which is open. The point of the budget is to reduce monthly fees, and issue internal credits (a soft dividend); but also to keep rainy-day money and no surplus.

  • Ch-ch-ch-changes

Changes to the compact require consensus.
