Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Re: [VOTE] Tim Kim as committer
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2012 17:09:24 GMT
I'm confused as to why we have to have *any* barriers to entry, especially
if the community votes on committership anyways.

I would be a fan of a "if x people vote +1, and no one voted -1, let the
person in" mentality.

What downsides does this approach pose?
