Wording is jargony

'implement' isn't the best word choice. It has a technical meaning that doesn't fit here.

I suggest replacing it with 'use' and 'run'.

  • "We authorize the board to use Discourse for the main member forum..."
  • "spend up to $500 to run Discourse".

Or maybe for the first point, "We authorize the board to replace Google Groups with Discourse for the main member forum".

Basically, avoid using words that will over-specify or specify the wrong actions. Skm (talk) 10:19, 22 September 2017 (CDT)


Wouldn't hosting be a recurring cost? Skm (talk) 10:15, 22 September 2017 (CDT)

Why does the cost need to be specified? It sounds like something that could fit in the CTO budget. Skm (talk) 10:15, 22 September 2017 (CDT)
