Subject Re: Vetoes for New Committers??
Date Wed, 29 Mar 2017 08:16:22 GMT
Well, isn't that a weak argument, since said company already have majority
and with vetoes can also block to loose such majority. If this happens, I
would assume that someone in the PMC would bring it to Board's attention to
look into the matter, as the only course of action against a malevolent
company taking control of a project, no matter which voting system you
apply.

Cheers
