 It resolved the direction of the effort well. It showed great consensus building.

In many ways this [VOTE] thread was more a consensus building [DISCUSS]. I didn't want to
dampen an enthusiastic discussion that was getting somewhere with technicalities. Projects
find their own way of working, and the time will come to cover necessary formalities with
private votes to add committers and public votes about release candidates.

One thing that ought to be cleared up in the next week is the procedure for voting on the
contestants. Will it be a ranked order until a choice is the majority? Will it be the most
votes no matter how few? Will it be a run-off between the top two? This is up to this PPMC.
