Hey all,

I'd like to suggest that we might want to not vote -1 on the first
sign of issues.

Of course we'd like to see any error report, but I feel it'd be nice
to wait for suggestions on how to fix this, rather than voting -1 or
voting -1 with a condition and later having to retract that.

And if it turns out to be a grave error, a -1 is very much called for.

Sorry for jumping on Sam here, but this has been done before and I
assume Sam just thinks it is standard procedure :)

It might be me, but I know that tallying votes is less confusing with
definite votes.

Please disagree with me, if you think we should continue with the
current practice :)
