What do you see as radical change ?

The policy essentially just makes sure that there are responsible
people around while the space is open; from what I gather is, that
this essentially has been meant to be always the case, but if you have
been in Noisebridge in the last year or so, you can see that the lax
implementation made the space detoriate that nobody wanted to be there
anymore. The reboot wants to fix that.
