Subject RE: [MATH]: Current state of project?
Date Tue, 02 Aug 2016 16:35:43 GMT
There are a number of dangling [VOTE] threads that seem to devolve into inconclusive discussion.
 Nevertheless, it would be useful for the creator of those votes to resolve them with [RESULT][VOTE]
messages that account for any actual votes cast and where there were no votes.

In ASF parlance, these all seem to be procedural votes, so simple majority works (unless the
Commons PMC has a well-established practice that differs) -- apart from the important effort
to achieve a consensus result, where possible, by addressing possible cures for -1 votes.
 And, of course, only the votes by PMC members are binding, with due respect to community
votes in striving for consensus as well as it can be achieved.

There's a reason for this parliamentary business: arriving at clear conclusions and direction.
 It may be that there is no such thing for the [MATH] dilemma.  It would be good to have even
that clarified.
