Anyone can vote. It is good to hear the opinions of developers.
As usual the binding votes are those of PMC members.
Using "Consensus approval":
The vote will run for the normal one week and so finish at
midnight UTC on 2005-05-10

Please vote on these two proposals:

A) Remove each mention of "Active" from guidelines.html

B) Remove the separation of "active" committers from who.html
