Subject Re: [VOTE] Revised dormancy policy - take 3
Date Wed, 08 Jun 2011 14:48:29 GMT

I kind of know Jelly will come here... 
And with this rule, it feels like it might allow me to smoothly restart work on jelly when
time comes, then request a vote for removal of dormancy when I feel confident.

As answered by Phil to James, I believe that the vote is only considered with that... the
removal of the flag.

That flag, btw, is likely to be a title change in jira (which is ok), and a rebuild of the
website with the indications.

Components that we decide are obsolete or for other reasons are unlikely to ever be revived
should be moved to the Apache Attic.  To retire a component to the Attic requires a vote similar
to 0).
