Subject Re: [DISCUSS] is overriding a PR check ever justified?
Date Fri, 22 Nov 2019 20:39:53 GMT
@Naba.. wrong thread :)

We have real scenario here now, where we have no consensus on whether we 
are allowed or not allowed to override.. Do we vote now? OR do we apply 
common sense?

TBH, at this junction we should really just do whatever we believe is 
correct. A committer is appointed due to trust, so we should trust that 
our committers will do the right thing.

But the same trust that our committers would always do the right thing 
has gotten us to this point where we don't trust....

MUCH bigger chicken-and-egg problem.

I motion that we vote on this. I would also like to request all those 
AGAINST the override to provide strategies for us to not shoot-ourselves 
in the foot. (like Dan said)
