Subject Re: Committer Voting and Vetos
Date Fri, 26 Sep 2014 12:41:39 GMT
Hey Alex
If during a new committer vote someone is giving a negative vote then the
reasoning should be included with that vote and a discussion can follow
around why the person was given the negative vote, this should all occur on
the private@ mailing list for that project. If there is hesitation about a
new committer then it should be brought out into the open and vetted and
the veto should not just be glossed over and ignored
