In my view, it's appropriate to run the votes in parallel if the RM has good
reason to believe that the vote will pass.  It would certainly make sense when
a freelance IPMC member has detected something in a previous general@ VOTE
thread.

However, I don't think it should be standard operating procedure to run votes
in parallel, because I don't think it's to our benefit to clog the general@
list with busted vote threads about about broken builds, missing dependencies,
failing tests and so on.  Votes should come to general@ only after technical
problems have been worked out.
