I have one small problem, and was otherwise +1 on the final proposed text;

fuck that shit.

The reason public votes are inferior is that some of the IPMC members may
be reluctant to share their private issues or opinions of a prospective
committer on a public forum, period.

There is no other reason for not voting in public.

Given that we are the gatekeepers of incubating efforts at the ASF, all
matter of relevant information needs to be presented when considering a
new project, a new committer or the final graduation vote.
