This is the documentation for Suffr.
New: [Bootstrapping Digital Democracy] (executive summary)
[Robot's Rules of Order] - Whitepaper overview
I've wrapped up a version of recent work. It's good for an idea of what I'm doing (and more than a few laughs). Most important is the start toward an "opinion" system to give members an idea of whether Suffr topics will do what they claim. It works, but is untested and is still very much an experiment.
Suffr is a design (and plugin) to allow a group of people to manage a computer system together. It addresses the need for groups to maintain control over computing resources when working in trust-poor situations.
Using Suffr, groups maintain the core configuration of a computer system under their control. They can alter Wiki recipes to propose changes to system configuration. They then "sign off" on desirable recipes. When a sufficient number of users sign off, Suffr puts the system configuration changes into place.
The best document to start with is "Robot's Rules of Order", found in the Suffr downloads page above.
Here's more introduction on Suffr.
