Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache Hive 0.13.1 Release Candidate 2
Date Tue, 27 May 2014 18:49:56 GMT
The Hive ByLaws require that a release vote should remain open for at
least 72 hours, so as to give people time to test. I would like,
however to make allowances for the fact that this was a long weekend,
and it's likely people were off on vacation. Thus, I think I will
count working days to mark the cutoff time for 3 days, thus excluding
yesterday and the weekend, thus making the cutoff after tomorrow night
(thus allowing Friday, Tuesday and Wednesday for perusal). If I get 3
+1s and no -1s by 1:45AM Thursday May 29th (that's thursday early
morning, not thursday afternoon), I will consider this vote as having
passed, and continue with the remaining steps outlined in the wiki.

In this, I should also note that I skipped the end date declaration
for in this vote mail as per Edward's response to my previous vote
mail that said that that statement specifying end date was incorrect
because a vote will remain open for as long as it has to. I see his
point, and it is incorrect to assert that it concludes at 3 days, it's
more that 3 days is a minimum time granted to allow people to register
disapproval after testing if they desire to. That line was picked
directly from the HowToRelease wiki, however, so I would suggest that
the PMC clarify the rules on that and edit it appropriately.
