Subject [VOTE] Re: 2.0 release
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2003 09:10:13 GMT
Personally, I believe that this issue has gone on far too long and so I  
would like to propose a vote:

I move the motion that the following methods from  
org.apache.commons.httpclient.util.URIUtil be depreciated for the 2.0  
release and removed in a future release:

toDocumentCharset(String, String)
toProtocolCharset(String, String)
toUsingCharset(String, String, String)

Please cast your votes:

+1 - The methods should be depreciated
0 - Active Abstain (no response being a passive abstain)
-1 - The methods should not be depreciated (veto)  Veto's must contain  
an explanation of why the veto is appropriate.

Under Jakarta's voting guidelines  
(http://jakarta.apache.org/site/decisions.html) product changes (such  
as this) are subject to lazy consensus, however in this case I would  
like to achieve consensus on the issue and as such the vote will be  
considered passed if there are 3 binding +1 votes and no binding vetos  
or the proposal will be turned down if there are any -1 votes.

I would encourage non-committers to submit non-binding votes as well,  
particularly if you can see a use for the methods in question.

Here's my +1.
