Subject [VOTE] Clarify PPMC votes (Incubator Policy)
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2008 19:58:04 GMT
While updating the PPMC new committer voting guide, I notice that  
there has been no recent action on https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/INCUBATOR-72

An affirmative vote is required to change the policy, which currently  
confuses the role of the PPMC and the incubator PMC. The patch simply  
removes the text "and only the PPMC member votes are binding".
