Subject Re: [VOTE] Revised dormancy policy
Date Mon, 16 May 2011 21:34:36 GMT
Sorry Phil,

I missed that one. I would like to adjust that policy at line:
>    d) svn remains open (but no commits without revival vote)

It seems slightly too harsh to me.
Since jelly is among the heaviest targeted ones here, I think the whole dormancy aspect would
fit but preventing commits sounds like the best way to "cap off any attempt of revival".
Couldn't we say

>    d) svn remains open (but no release without revival vote)

? Or something similar that prevents active development?

thanks in advance
