Self-killed. Failed by Kevan. -2 points to Darth Cliche.

Replace the text:

* It has a number of FOR votes that exceed or equal Quorum, has been open for voting for at least 12 hours, and has not been vetoed or self-killed.
* It has been open for voting for at least 48 hours, it has more than 1 valid vote, more than half of its votes are FOR, and it has not been vetoed or self-killed.

in Rule 1.5 Enactment with:

* It has a number of FOR votes that exceed or equal Quorum, has been Pending for at least 12 hours, has not been vetoed or self-killed, and there is no current Hiatus.
* It has been Pending for at least 48 hours, it has more than 1 valid vote, more than half of its votes are FOR, has not been vetoed or self-killed, and there is no current Hiatus.

Replaces “open for voting” with “Pending”, and to prevent proposals passing during Hiatus, adds a “no current Hiatus” condition.

against  on two counts
1)The ‘no current hiatus’ condition is already covered by the Hiatus ruletext in Rule 1.9
2)The ‘open for voting’ clause is a necessary anti-scam measure.  Hiatus isn’t the only way to keep voting from happening.

The second half of this rule (“may be failed”) also uses the “open for voting” wording, which you don’t replace. And proposals explicitly can’t be passed during Hiatus anyway, under the second paragraph of Rule 1.9.

This proposal is enough of a fix, I think.

I had somehow not realized that the other proposal made Hiatus proposals “open for voting”.  against  s/k, [Trivial].
