Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache Fineract 0.5.0 (incubating)
Date Tue, 20 Dec 2016 11:56:27 GMT
Justin is very accurate, that the -1 is a vote and not a veto. We don't
want to block releases just because someone didn't get the right coffee
that morning.

However (also implied by J) some such votes should be asserted as if vetoed
with the usual attribution to "why?", which has happened by for instance
Category X dependency noticed by someone in last minute review (perhaps
transitively, which happens more and more as the GitHub crowd barely cares
about it). As project matures, less and less of these instances tend to
occur, and that is why we have the incubator (and big awesome thanks to
Justin vetting so many releases!)

This is seldom (if ever) a problem since the valid reasons are solidly
agreed upon, unlike some code changes.
