Subject Re: Committer/PPMC votes

Hi,

Way back when each project having a set of bylaws/guidelines was fashionable I looked through
them and there is some variation but a -1 on a committer or PMC member is generally treated
as a veto. That being said any objections should really come up in the discussion stage (and
hopefully mitigated) before a vote is called so a -1 vote should be rare. If you look at [1]
[2] you see that consensus voting allows for a veto (with a reason) and AFAIK most projects
use consensus approval when adding committers/PMC members. It may be some don’t realise
this as a -1 has never come up.

Thanks,
Justin
