Subject Re: Voting on AIPs - what's our process?
Date Fri, 22 Feb 2019 10:54:12 GMT
There was a post about this AIP on 1 Febuary (but no replies other than me), and AIPs are not
code changes so the point about veto doesn't apply here I don't think?.

But yes, I think the rough idea of there should be apparent consensus before a vote is called
makes sense. I  was using "Lazy consensus" in calling my vote as no one else spoke up on the
discussion thread ;)
