Of course, any time.

I'm reading this as: Benoit thinks there's a specific cause for his test errors,
but he can't remember seeing a commit to code around that cause in the
past. Hence "missing a commit" as it not knowing it about.

Everybody in this thread must vote on the artefacts that Noah prepared
that is the same code for everybody (it comes with a gpg signature,
md5 and sha hash and voters should verify they all match).

Benoit, if my reading of this is incorrect, please let me know :)

When Noah sends out a mail with [VOTE] in the subject he links to a location
for a CouchDB tarball that is nominated to be the next CouchDB release.

Everybody on dev@ is encouraged to vote on the nominated release.

If you have any further questions, let me know :)
