Subject Re: Documentation of voting rules.
Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 17:24:19 GMT
Apache PMCs, including the incubator PMC, operate by consensus except
in a very small number of enumerated exceptional cases. So, the vote,
I think, is a test of consensus. -1 votes block consensus until
discussed to 0. There's no minimum number of +1 votes.

I am always prepared to be corrected.
