Subject Re: Board will be proposing a new TLP

Another question: for which case do you like to use the voting tool?

Imo this makes only sense for invite votes. And even for those it's sometimes important to
be able to cast additional notes.

For technical votes it is de facto always the case that I like to see if people like it straight
away, or if they have additional ideas.

Otherwise +1 for a voting project as TLP. 

I'd be more in favour to go through incubation though. And if it's only to increase visibility
and to show people that we treat each project equally.
Such a project could surely graduate within a few months.
