The purpose of change proposals is to get people who care about an issue 
an opportunity to do exactly that: wrap up and reference everything that 
is needed for a poll.

At a minimum, we give everybody a full month to produce change 
proposals.  Generally, this works out to be much more than that.

As to polls, they run for a minimum of a week.  I am familiar with other 
organizations where 72 hours is considered sufficient.
