Proposal: Digging deepest

Self-killed. Failed by pokes.

Adminned at 19 Jan 2019 13:48:09 UTC

In enacting this Proposal, consider it to have the same text as the Proposal titled “Digging deeper”.

Second time’s a charm, as they say.

Loophole here in that an admin could propose a second, later proposal called “Digging deeper” and choose to enact text from that one instead.

(I thought a “proposal names always refer to the most recent oldest proposal with that name” fix was put forward for this a while back, but can’t see anything in the ruleset.)

Presumably this should also update its exemption for ongoing Cases?

You’re right against

I haven’t thought of a good way yet to write the exemption so that existing cases get closed under the old rules, even if it gets enacted while open, but future cases get enacted under the new rules. I guess it could add a whole new copy of the old method and say cases up to N get closed via method A and cases from N+1 on get closed via method B, and once all cases up through N are closed, repeal method A. But what a hassle. against
