It was defined by the technical board.

> - Requiring a 6/7 majority makes it very difficult to pass a vote because almost everybody has to be available, in attendance and in agreement.

No, it is an attendance quorum. It means we cannot take a decision
if too many members are missing.
The vote is at majority (50%).

> - It means that companies that have two representatives on the board (currently Intel and 6WIND) effectively have a veto.

See above, 50% avoid such veto.

> - A minor point, but whatever level we decide on should be expressed as a percentage so that it's applicable if/when the board size changes.

Yes, that's why I've suggested in the charter a 70% quorum if I remember well
(but I cannot find it anymore and history is disabled).
