All I'm saying is that you don't have to have a strict deadline.
Doing so only discourages latecomers from voicing their opinions.

This is an abnormal vote as ASF votes go. Normally, there is an
obvious majority that emerges quickly after a vote is called. If
there is a divide, the topic is usually discussed some more until
a compromise can be reached.

We want to avoid situations where a latecomer shows up and it is
their vote that tips the scales. The results of such a hypothetical
vote would not be indicative of a united community.
