Subject Re: [TTH] vetoes get in the way
Date Fri, 05 Dec 2014 12:14:28 GMT
I think what we've seen is that all VOTEs get just enough votes to
pass because once enough passing votes are in, people choose to spend
the little time they have available for the projects on something
else.

3 votes are enough for a release, and I don't think we have to be
afraid of not reaching that target for any upcoming release.
