Subject Re: [VOTE] how to upgrade CloudStack from 3.0.x to 4.0
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2012 23:41:21 GMT
Okay. :)

Just a note that consensus building through discussion may be a more
productive way to get things like this resolved. Voting tends to be useful
when the discussion is over and there are clear alternatives that everyone
understands.

Consensus building is our primary tool, voting is just a formality, and in
most cases, not even necessary.
