Subject [VOTE] introduce "[DISCUSS]" threads for podling releases
Date Tue, 12 Mar 2019 17:26:50 GMT
I believe discussion has petered down on my proposal.  It's time to bring
it to a vote.


"Podlings should be able to request feedback by starting a "[DISCUSS]"
thread or a "[VOTE]" thread.  The podling can decide whether they prefer
[DISCUSS] or [VOTE], but only a release which passes a vote by members of
the IPMC is an official ASF release.

Discussion should give podlings feedback on what they would need to do to
bring their release in line with the requirements of an official ASF
release and thus for graduation to TLP.  Podlings will be responsible for
capturing feedback that they accept in work items for their project.

Feedback provided in a discussion thread will not block a non-ASF release.
Asking for feedback using this mechanism is not obligatory, but rather a
service that the incubator offers and podlings can take advantage of."

Notes on proposal:
* I've adjusted it slightly from my original proposal based on feedback.
* This does not remove the requirement of voting on general for official
ASF releases.  I do not object to that idea, but it's not necessary for
this proposal, so I'm keeping it separate.
* If the proposal is accepted, I'll find and update the relevant incubator
documentation.  I'd appreciate any pointers y'all would like to give me.
* This proposal does presume that we are allowing non-ASF releases in the
early days of a poddling.  My understanding of the discussion of the last
few weeks is that this has *actually* always been allowed, but that that
knowledge may not have been wide spread.
* It's not explicitly stated in my proposal, but I think many of us would
veto graduation of a podling that has never asked for feedback on its
releases in any form.  I don't feel the need to encode that in the
proposal, since it is current policy.
