Subject Re: Podling binding votes

> As a mentor I've (nearly) always advised that if there are three IPMC votes on the dev

I therefore point out in the general@ vote mail that 3 binding (IPMC) +1's have been received
and therefore there is only a need to vote if there is an objection.
Fair enough + seem reasonable to me.

as such by the project). Only IPMC votes are considered binding at the foundational level
since PPMC members are not yet a member of a formal committee.
You need 3 +1 votes first on the podlings dev list, and PPMC votes do count there, we wouldn't
see a lot of podling releases otherwise. :-) Does that mean any +1 vote (say by a committer
or user) on the dev list also counts if PPMC votes aren't actually considered binding? (I'd
assume not but again it's not clear from the document).
