The purpose of these rules is not to restrict anyone but to help us create a community of friendship and goodwil and to ensure members rights.
all rules where arrived at through a democratic process and are periodicaly reexamined and changed if need be.
The charter defines who we are, what we stand for and what the basic principals of the community are.
Current charter version was ratified on the 22nd of July 2004
Policies are not as fundemental as the charter, they may be reviewed more frequently, policies are practical rules that help organize EGLUG activities and website.
the current set of policies are just placeholders until a more comprehensive set is arrived at democraticaly.
