Subject RE: [DISCUSS] Change by-laws on release votes: 5 days instead of 7
Date Sat, 21 Jun 2014 09:19:51 GMT
How about proposing vote for 5days and give chance to RM for extending vote for 2more days(
total to 7days) if the rc did not receive enough vote within 5days? If a rc received enough
votes in 5days, RM can close vote.
I can see an advantage of 7days voting is, that will cover all the week and weekend days.
So, if someone wants to test on weekend time(due to the weekday schedules), that will give
chance to them.

 I'd like to propose we change our by-laws to reduce our voting periods on new releases from
7 days to 5.

 Currently, it just takes too long to turn around releases; particularly if we have critical
security fixes etc.
