I note that this isn’t quite right - the process here is that a new LC is required (as I noted in the meeting).

The reason given in XEP-0001 (I had the rule swapped in, but not the reason, at the time) is that previous Council may have not given feedback publicly (because they have their say in Council), and the new LC gives the previous Council a chance to publicly express opinions to inform new Council’s votes.

On that basis, I do feel like we should probably do things properly and re-issue the LC, so I’m -1 on advancement without that step.
