We're also reworking our Bylaws and have the same issues about what belongs in Bylaws and what is guidance. The question we have in working on the Bylaws update is the same one that motivated this thread: How can we append the guidance in some meaningful way to the Bylaws? We want those concepts to be accepted as community governance norms, but norms don't belong in Bylaws. I like the term "Implementation Guidelines" but am wondering how to tie them to the Bylaws so that (in particular) new folks will know about them, see them, and read & assimilate them.
