Subject Differences in voting rules between Apache Maturity Model and Incubator Default Project Guidelines
Date Thu, 07 Mar 2019 11:30:29 GMT
Hi all,

we’re currently working on some pre-graduation work and stumbled over something:
In the Apache Maturity Model [1] is says that:

CS40 - In Apache projects, vetoes are only valid for code commits and are justified by a technical
explanation, as per the Apache voting rules defined in CS30.

However the Incubator Default Project Guidelines [2] suggest code changes are “lazy consensus”
and stuff like Comitter, PMC, Chai changes are “Consensus approval” which is described

Consensus approval requires 3 binding<>
+1 votes and no -1 votes (vetoes<>).

So these two seem to be contradicting each other.

Not quite sure which rules should be applied.
