Date First Discussed: 2019-09-21 Date Most Recently Discussed: 2019-10-12 #### Details The top rated proposal was to have tool-specific constraints on usage. To support this, we discussed some options for what we can do. The ideas we settled on were as follows: 1. Have a README template that we can fill out and print and laminate and then mount on the constrained tools to point people to information about the tool and its constraints on usage. 2. Have a general info sheet we can give people explaining that some tools will have tool-specific constraints on usage, and that information about the tool will be posted on the tool. 2. Have a mailing list that makes it easy for people to get in touch with folx who are responsible for the tool-specific constraints. #### Proposals The following are proposals for this mod, with their ratings to their left.
